Sleeping For Toddlers / Re: Support for dropping the nap part 12
« Last post by KatieAlexis on July 04, 2019, 13:11:04 pm »
Hi there,
Not sure where to post 2-1 nsp transition question so please tell me if this needs moving. My daughter is almost 16mo. Since going to childminder 3 days a week(since 12 mo) she has been sleeping at funny times. Wakes 630am, 30 min nap at 9-930am then nap at 1-230pm ish then bed about 7. This is the schedule the childminder swears works, but it doesn't seem to work on my days off: she refuses to sleep in morning and sometimes I just give up and put her down after lunch at 1pm or so. Other days she naps happily at 930 ish but I wake her otherwise she'd sleep for a couple of hours and not sleep again until very late in the afternoon.

I guess I'm unsure what to try to do. Should I try to switch to one nap after lunch or just accept that this is just a transition period where she'll sometimes have 2 naps and sometimes 1?

Thanks for any tips!

No ideas I'm afraid, hopefully it was a one-off.. ::) when my girls have been overtired, they have never done that but I don't know what it means. My DD2 is behaving really weirdly right now, she's frustrated about something and unhappy but can be really happy aswell and I don't know what it is, every now and then I feel like a huge questionmark it seems... 🤔 will be interesting to see how your today goes!

She was fussy and seemed tired. Definitely not smiling as she usually is.  She finally went to sleep at 9:30 pm. I nursed her and she still didnít fall asleep so not sure what that was about.

Oh, that  never happened to us so i don't know really what it means.. 30 min usually means ot if they wake up unhappy. but what do you mean she is still up? Is she unhappy and seems tired or just awake and refusing sleep?

Breast Feeding / Re: 5 month old nursing erratically

Things are pretty good on the BF front. Sheís eating  between 3.25-4hrs and one over night feed.

She is in fact teething so sometimes will want to stay on the breast for comfort. I let her bc itís nowhere near sleep time.

I realized that sometimes she will root when she is falling asleep as a self-soothe like she turns her head and does the sucking sound. So I guess it was that

So last nap was after 2:15 A bc of my DS disruption and she napped for 1.75. We put her down for bed after 2hrs, she slept 30 minutes and is still up after almost 1.5 hours.

This has never happened. Does this sound like OT?

Breast Feeding / Re: Should i wean 14.5 mo for nights?

I wouldn't actively wean while he has issues with weight gain. I'd feed as often as you can.

How is his solids intake? Will the dr refer you to a dietician?

Sorry for the delay?

How are things now? Breastfed babies will nurse more often yes.  If she's rooting that sounds like hunger.

Could be she is going through a growth spurt, there is one around 4 weeks, they can sleep more and feed more.
Also some babies do reverse cycle and sleep more in the day, so try and get her outside as much as possible, even if it is before a feed. While long term feed,  activity, sleep is more ideal, itís not going to do any damage to not do it in the early months.

Just keep trying to wake her after 3 max (esp if it is hot) hours and even give her a sponge bath if she is sleepy and even feed outside in the shade.

Hot weather can make them sleep longer too
