Sleeping For Toddlers / Re: Trouble getting 16 month old down

Possibly too late to say this but if she woke later today I'd use that as the trigger to move the nap later.
Good luck!

Please don't think that you have wasted my time and there is no need to apologise.

Honey - do you have some support for your depression?
Do you have a current thread here to gain some support?

Many many hugs xx

For moving bedrooms I'd start doing A time in there now before the blinds arrive.  Lots of time to get used to the room and have a good look around, a bed safari (walking around the outside of the bed, crawling on the whole surface of the bed, climbing up and down various sides and parts of the bed etc) and talk about how it is LOs room.
At the move it will likely cause disturbance again but getting used to the room before hand is the only prep I can think of really.
Mine has always had a very plain room, no visual stimulation, he doesn't even like coloured or patterned or the kiddie bed covers, we tried that and had to change back to plain cream/ivory.

I'm so sorry to waste your time. I'm dealing with a lot and of that is clinical depression. plus the fact that i have no family or friends where i am and have had no help so far. yesterday was brutal with 5+ nws. i think i will push back the nap to 1030am and either let him sleep for an hour n1 and then try n2 in his bed (and maybe he will extend that nap as he has done in the past) or just carry on with allow him to sleep in my arms until a miracle happens. i think this is the best option for my situation atm. i am thankful for you all for helping me to teach him to sleep in his bed and not in my arms for all naps! at least we made some progress. i really wanted to teach him before he learned to climb out or some other obstacle but...that's life.

ill probably be back when I'm more stable and can handle things better instead of flip-flopping so frequently.

thank you so much!

Naps / Re: 10 month old short naps & standing in crib
« Last post by Pearceuccs on August 15, 2017, 04:14:01 am »
Well I did the training again.. independent sleep using the shuffle methods. He's slept through the night the past 3 nights!! It really is the key. Had to remind him that he can do it on his own. We are still in the rubbing the back phase. It was hard to get outta that habit the last time. If he keeps sleeping good maybe we don't HAVE TO break the habit. If all needs Is a little back rubbing and sleeps all night, I'll take it.

Yesterday
Wu at 615
A 3hr15
S 2 hours!!
A 330
S 1 hour (till 415pm)
A 3hr45 ( tried to get him to go to bed at 7.. didn't fall asleep till 8
Sttn 10 hr 30 min ( seems to be his normal now unfortunately) minus him up from 515-530 but went back to sleep on own and it might have been because of me shutting his door

Today
Late wake up at 7 (usually it's 6... prob because of late BT
A 3hr50 (longer AT today because he had a hard time falling asleep and took an hour and finally feel asleep closer to 3hr50 AT- I tried putting him in his crib closer to 3hours and obviously to short even though it worked yesterday)
S 1hr20 (woke up at an hour and went back to sleep for another 20)
A 3 hr (short AT  because it was already 315pm and I was worried about BT)
S 38 min (I woke to persevere BT)
A 3
S BT 7pm
We will see how the night goes tonight

Seems like I should never let him sleep past 4pm.

Thanks!

Ahhhh he ended up falling asleep around 10 pm 😧

I think DH put him down too late though. I think it was around 8:30 pm. He did give him meds though. Maybe he's UT? Or so OT that he's wired?

Also, any advice for moving LO into new room as a toddler? We tried but A. We realized we need blackout curtains bc it's too bright. B. He just wanted to play for over an hour.

Should I start a separate thread when we get out blackout shades?

General Sleep Issues / Re: 10 wks, routine help pls

Hi!
This link might also help https://babywhispererforums.com/index.php?topic=85130.0

I have a 10wk old too and his A time is also around 1.15-1.30.
7:30 bedtime sounds great to me, it's what I've been trying in fact (although with little luck), but with my older two that's when I'd put them down for the night.

i'd say if he's going to sleep with no fuss at that time and it works for your family, keep it.

General Sleep Issues / Re: 7 month old bedtime battles
« Last post by sparklewings1984 on August 14, 2017, 21:43:13 pm »
So that would be a 9pm BT??? I'm really not sure I can cope with that after a full day with the baby and a nearly 3 year old, selfish I know  :-\

He's definitely OT at bedtime and that's why he's doing the wake ups after 1 sleep cycle and then being crazy manic for 1-2 hours before he finally goes to sleep. When we do a "perfect" 3hr A, 1.5 nap, 3 hour A, 1.5 nap, 3 hour A day, then he's napping brilliantly but still have the bedtime wake up and battle back to sleep.
