Sleeping For Toddlers / Re: Help with toddler sleep
« Last post by sammy23 on Yesterday at 10:23:47 »
Thank you he needed us to stay and hold his hand while he fell asleep or he'd say rub my back but we gradually moved further away from his cot now I sit at the door and if he asks I say mammys here that has helped with the sleeping but he won't sleep a full night he wakes a lot sometimes screaming we're getting no sleep we do the same thing to get him back asleep but as he wakes during the night he is less tierd last night he woke about 5 times took him 1.30hr to get back asleep at on stage then around 5 we brought him to our bed we were desperate for sleep as we new we'd be up early i no this doesn't help the matter but he doesn't seem to be settling at all his routine during day is still same I've tried missing out on his nap but he ends up worse over tierd and taking ages to fall asleep 😴
Ok, so my general impressions are:
1. She's sleeping some pretty long naps (presuming she sleeps from S to the next E). If that is the case, she probably needs to be woken after max. 3hr, I would tend to go with 2-2.5hr just so she can tell the difference between night and day.
2. She's up at around 6am each day, so BT should be about 6pm - as in asleep for the night at 6pm. That's likely why she's upset at that hour, she's OT and needs to be in bed for the night. (Or you need to treat that 5am-ish feed as a NF and put her straight back in bed and not start your day til closer to 7/8am - then you can have a 7-8pm BT.)
3. Husband coming home... not sure if chicken or egg wrt the unsettledness. I know DS would literally shake with excitement when DH came home/we went to pick him up and it would take 2hr to get him to settle and he was always OT so I would have him asleep when DH arrived home so I had maximum chance of him calming again before going to bed or I'd wait til he woke from his nap, go and pick DH up and he'd have a full A time with DH. DHs can be very overstimulating just by being there because they're relatively novel so when they get kiddo all excited, its just too much and LO won't settle. There's a time and place for that and its on the weekend, during the day not at night time just before BT.

Hah yeah I know! My 5 year old had severe reflux that even meds stopped working when teething started. Our only saving grace was her teeth all erupted in one go and within a month she had all her teeth. I think I much preferred that to this waiting around for weeks for 1 molar to break through!

She napped 1hr 50 mins today! So I am hoping she gets the idea and settles into 1 nap quick! Well one can hope! Thanks again!

Thank you for your reply 😊.
I did have a feeling his nap was early but my worry was if we push it later he might not sleep for very long if he's overtired. But I will push it back as I know it needs to sit after lunch.
What time does your ds go to bed on an early wake up day and a normal day? Are bedtimes set?
Yes I'm planning on going cold turkey with the dummy soon, although he is poorly at the moment so the last few nights have been a write off!
Also when you do a 12:15 nap do you give lunch before or after?
Thanks again

My DS2 is 19 months and still has BT bottle, your routine at BT looks good I wouldn't fix what's not broken for now as he's still young. Just make sure you do a little teeth clean after the milk.

Some lo just like that added comfort of the bottle still.

Hi, it's so exhausting isn't it being up so much at night.

First thing I'd prob do is push your nap later, early naps can make WU early. My DS2 is 19 months and our nap is set at 12.45, on a 6.15/6.30 WU,  if he wakes before 6am it's 12.15. For you I'd start pushing it to 11am and get rid of the CN.

With regards to dummy at night I guess you can either go cold turkey and loose it altogether or deal with it another time and put a few in his cot at night so he can replug?

Then I'd prob go for a no nap day after later BT get him up still at say 7am but have him in bed by 6.30/7pm to make up for short night.
If he was on no nap before this I'd prob try to get back to that and keep his day to 12 hours or allow 20 min CN about 3pm just to push through to 7pm bt.
Ah Hun these kids do like to keep us on our toes, it can take a good few days for things to get better x
