Sleeping For Toddlers / Re: 2:1 mess at 14 months

Try medicating for pain before bed? Ibuprofen/nurofen is pretty long-lasting. Some parents even try a "dream med" like a dream feed, only you give them meds while they're sleeping so the new dose starts working before the old one wears off. (I wish someone had thought to clue me in on that when mine were teething!)

No I cut night feeds a while ago.
She generally has a good appetite during the day and eats plenty.
She gets a bottle of hot water when she wakes for the day but I donít give this before half 6 and she doesnít get her breakfast before 7 so that I donít train her tummy into expecting anything before then.

Sheís cutting molars just now but I medicate for this if she wakes but it doesnít seem to help her get back to sleep

Are you ever able to resettle her in the mornings? I remember a period around this age where I'd go in and let DD sleep on my in a chair in her room and she & I could squeeze in an extra sleep cycle or two sometimes. Might be worth a go.

Sleeping For Toddlers / 2:1 mess at 14 months

Hi

This forum is so quiet nowadays but Iím hoping someone might offer advice.

My LG is generally a good sleeper who ss sucking her thumb. Sheís 14.5 months and Iíve gotten into a mess with the 2:1. She was waking earlier and earlier And is ot. I used to do early bedtime to try and catch up on sleep but just now it doesnít seem to be helping - it just means she wakes earlier.

She does 5 A in the morning and then normally has a 2 hour nap if it home. At nursery 3 days a week, she does around 6 A in the morning and then a shorter sleep - she has never slept for long at nursery. She seems to like a shorter a to bedtime so 5 A to bed gets her ot but she wonít take cn and ebt isnít picking up extra sleep so it is then emw.

Iíve attached her sleep tracker. does anyone have any advice to try and get some sort of routine into place to help with nw and emw?
Thanks

Naps / Need encouragement -Shush patting with 10 week old
« Last post by lmuhlhauser on January 16, 2020, 22:24:47 pm »
Hello fellow baby whisperers ! I am so grateful for this site! Our darling son is 10 weeks old now Ė he is our sixth baby. I have use the baby whisperer technique for all of our children. And I have pretty much always gone through this phase from about 10 weeks to about 16 weeks is when it starts Ė depending on the child. And then I have to sort of get them used to going to sleeping on their own. They tend to wake up after that first sleep cycle in their naps and then have a hard time settling down again. And we start the whole shush patting thing. I know it worksAs I used it with all our other children and they ended up being great sleepers! But I have to admit when Iím in the trenches of it Ė it is so exhausting. I started last Saturday and I feel like the last two days he totally regressed. I just need some encouragement and would like to know if anybody else has had that happen? Beginning it Ė seeing progress Ė and then seeing a total regression. Some of his naps today were 14 minutes long. Exhausting. And itís just hard because I have to tend to the other five children as well. But I know that itís worth it because in the end it will result in a baby who can sleep independently and wake up happy rather than fussy. Any encouragement is so needed!  Also Ė itís really hard because his naps are so shortened. I feel like if that first nap is off -the whole day ends up getting thrown. He canít stay awake for his full wake times -understandably so - so heís overtired when he goes down for naps even when I really shorten the wake time.  I am literally putting him to sleep Ė coming back in to try to put him back to sleep in the middle of the nap Ė finally getting him out of the crib because he barely falls back asleep Ė feeding again Ė and then starting the whole cycle over again. Ahhhh!  But I seem to remember reading somewhere that Tracy said ďdonít give up before the miracle.Ē  thank you for any encouragement.

General Sleep Issues / 4 year old waking 1-3 times per night
« Last post by klo1020 on January 13, 2020, 22:18:54 pm »
All of a sudden a few months ago, my four year old (heíll be turning 5 next month) started waking during the night and coming into our bed. We always get up and bring him back to his room. This has been going on for months and he will still wakes between 1-3 times a night and comes into our bed. He goes to bed between 7:30-8:00pm and wakes around 7:00am.  Heís always been a great sleeper and I have no idea why heís started waking or how to stop it! Anyone have any thoughts or advise?!
