General Sleep Issues / Re: Seperation anxiety...?

No, she has not. But she went from 2-3oz of cows milk a day to 5-8oz. She also started grinding her teeth today. She has never been that miserable with teething before, but maybe it is a combination.
Sleeping For Toddlers / 13 months standard EASY routine?
« Last post by JCN on October 17, 2017, 21:21:39 pm »

Just looking for guidelines really...

My little boy is 13 months old and Iím just not sure immgetting his A time right atvthe minute. Sometimes he needs a nap after 3.5-4 hours and other days seems to not be tired enough until 5 hours.

Can anyone give me example routines of both one nap and two naps (as I think we are transitioning soon!)..... Iím particularly interested in whatís expected for A time at this age and suggest timings for naps and BT.

You could just shave 15 mins off the nap sometimes that's all it needs to start with x

Ok, so 2hr is not long enough, as expected, so increase to 2:15 and see if that helps.

but others he tells us to "go do pee", which means he's ready for us to leave.
That's hilarious! I love it!

Today he laughed for the first time :) Not smile, but real laugh.
Oh how lovely :)  Those moments are just wonderful.

Meanwhile he started sleeping again in chunks of 2,5-3 hrs at night, with the odd 5 hrs chunk now and then. And during the day I am more aware of his signals and put him down at wround 1:30 A time and he falls asleep  without crying, within 2-5 minutes. It's been going on for a few days
That's a great update too!

Dr thinks it's very likely he has reflux. However, as long as he's drinking well and growing fine (which he is), there's no reason to subject him to a gastroscopy,
I just wanted to say with regards to this. My DS and very many (I would guess at most) of the LOs on this forum have not had a gastroscopy for reflux.  I agree there is no point in doing procedures like that unless absolutely necessary.  However, many LOs still benefit from reflux medication and there is no ned for a gastroscopy to be prescribed with medication.  Perhaps just keep it in mind as the doc has said it is likely reflux.
Another thing is that so many times people are told babies out grow reflux at 6 months or 12 months, and again many of us have had other experiences. My DS didn't even start his reflux meds until 5.5 months, he was not going to grow out of it within 2 wks, neither did he grow out of it at 12 months. He needed meds until 2yo.  Then he had a long period with no meds but we discovered he has reflux flare ups so for the last few years we have medicated during a flare up and then stopped the meds again when it passes.  He is 6yo now.  I know from support I've had on BW that others experience similar with their children of various ages too.

Unfortunately she has gone back to only sleeping 45 minutes at a time during the day :( I've been keeping her awake about 2 hrs. My question is, if she is only having 45 minute naps should I shorten her awake time or keep it at 2 hrs?

LOL it's like you know me or something... thank you for responding and not making me sound like a lunatic. I guess I'll just have to do my best and we'll see. I'll post on how our day goes and maybe it'll help another parent.

Thanks again.
