Sleeping For Toddlers / Re: 23 month old starting daycare and not sleeping the night!
« Last post by Aura on September 30, 2020, 07:32:17 am »
This sometimes helps my daughter (im currently experiencing a different issue) is letting her sleep with something that smells like me. So I would either sleep with one of her blankets for a few days or give her something of mine to sleep with. She snuggles up to it, especially if it's soft and the scent calms her. Maybe this will help for your predicament. I wish you luck.
Sleeping For Toddlers / she won't let me put her back in the crib
« Last post by Aura on September 30, 2020, 07:01:56 am »
first time posting so if this is in the wrong area I apologize. My 16 mo has been waking up a few hrs after bedtime crying. I can get her back to sleep no problem. But my problem lies in when I put her back in her crib, or rather Try to, she immediately wakes up. And im talking the asleep where her pacifer has fallen out of her mouth and she still stays asleep. She stands up and starts crying or starts flailing the minute I lean over to put her in. Her bedtime routine is consistent, and she falls asleep and goes down in her crib with no issues during this time. I'm not sure if this is a sleep regression mixed with serperation anxiety, but its starting to happen every night and it's taking a toll on me. Her nap and sometime naps are in her crib too. Its overnight that is the issue. Please help.
Breast Feeding / 6 month only eats 2.5-3 oz every 4 hrs

Our 6 mo old used to take 6oz every 3-4 hrs. This week he has only been taking 2.5-3. Sometimes he eats more if we offer a bottle after nursing. He always eats more when he's sleepy. Any idea whats going on?
E.A.S.Y. Forum / Transitioning to 4 hr EASY
« Last post by audux on September 19, 2020, 10:59:51 am »

Need some advice here. Iím transitioning my LO to 4 hr EASY now and using 5-minute increment as a reference. Iím currently at 3h 15min EASY with 1h 30min nap and 1h 45min activity. When should I transition my LO to 3h 20min EASY? Heís currently adjusting to 1h 45min activity but unable to sleep full 1h 30min naps. Do I wait for him to be able to nap 1h 30 min before transiting to 3h 20min EASY whereby the nap time is extended by 5 mins?

Sleeping For Toddlers / 3 year old early wakings
« Last post by Mumof2munchkins on September 13, 2020, 10:25:21 am »
My youngest is 3y and 8m. She has never been a good sleeper at night. Previously used to have night terrors from ages of 1ish and would constantly wake hysterically crying  multiple times in night.She also used to have a dummy till she was 3.

I cut her nap (which was about half hour  long) which used to be at 1pm till about half 1:30. But this hasnt helped either.She wakes at 5ish and refuses to go back to sleep. I usually sit in her room at bedtime and most of the time within 5 mins she is asleep. She has continued to wake around 5 and refuses to sleep again and will toss and turn and complain.If i dont go to her room she would get out of bed and wakes my son up too down the corridor with her crying.Her gro clock comes on at 6, at which point I let her get out of bed. But she is constantly tired and tries to sleep even for 5 min car journey even on dining chairs! She usually asleep by half 7. She is usually in bed for 7:15ish.

Last night was the worse she kept waking from 11 till 12:30 and finally went sleep properly at 1.but then was wide awake from half 4 :(

She usually starts bedtime routine at 6:45 at weekend.on weekdays we do bath and pjs and then pick up my eldest from after school activity at 7.Straight upstairs at 7:05, nightlight on and then story and brush teeth and sleep. I usually have white noise on from 10pm ish for her.

Overall she is very stubborn and independent and likes to do everything herself.

I Don't know what to do as I thought she would sleep better when I dropped her nap about 4 weeks ago :(. Today i have resorted to letting her have 15 min nap at 11 am as she was so tired.

That makes sense. I feel like we have a solid routine and I just can't see what would cause him to be so unsettled..he has a witching hour starting around 4 but that's when all he wants to do is having an "unsettled" period would add up.
E.A.S.Y. Forum / Re: Cannot get second nap time right for 5 month old... Ever!
« Last post by deb on September 03, 2020, 10:53:59 am »
Sorry for the long silence - I just started a new job and remote teaching takes about ten times as long to get anything done as in-person. LOL

At this age I'd probably be cutting back to two naps, lengthening the A time if possible. I'm wondering if the unsettled sleep might be due to teething pain. Have you tried pain meds before sleep times to see if it makes a difference?
Breast Feeding / Drop cluster feed to make bedtime earlier or just keep feed in?
« Last post by sunny90 on September 01, 2020, 15:20:49 pm »
Currently my almost 8 wo is cluster feeding at 4, 6 and 8.
The thing is it takes her a while to go to bed and I only manage to get out around 9 which is really late and I think she's OT at bedtime. Because she feeds at 6 and then has her bath around 7:15/30 and eats close to 8 but doesn't really sleep in between.

I want to move her bedtime closer to 7 but wondering if that means I should drop the feed between 4 and 7 - it's usually more of a snack (one side only).

The only reason I hesitate is that she's a good night sleeper generally, waking up about twice a night. I don't want to ruin it, but I work in the evenings and really need to start my evening before 9 pm.

Should I move her bedtime earlier to like 7:15 and keep the feed? Drop it?
General Sleep Issues / 22 month old EW
« Last post by Han12345 on September 01, 2020, 14:12:15 pm »
Hi all,

I did a post and now canít seem to find it 🙈

Just looking for some help with my 22 month old who is early waking and I think waking during the night too. Sheís been waking early for a few weeks now, she happily sits in bed and doesnít shout so itís not too bad but then I find she is horrible in the day. Constantly moaning, hard work and not listening. She naps around 12.30 but we sometimes push it to 1/1.30pm.

I donít know if I should be letting her nap for longer to catch up or making it shorter. She usually does about 2 hours in the day (I often have to waker her as she sleeps so well) and then is great form in the afternoon but then takes quite a while to go to sleep at night. Bed time is usually 7pm but she can often be messing around till 8pm-ish.

We have just been away and her nap/ sleep hasnít been great so in all honesty I thought she would totally crash now home not waking even more.

Should I be shortening or even cutting her nap? Iím not sure if she can cope without a nap but I just need my happy little girl back.

My eldest slept 1-3 at her age and then bed 7-6.30pm. She didnít drop her nap till 2.5yo so surely this one doesnít need to drop her nap already?

It's his unsettled period...I was told, one 2-3 hour unsettled period (mostly in the witching hours of evening) a day, one unsettled day a week and one unsettled week a month was pretty normal and average. Also with 36week babies, often they 'catch up' quickly and it could easily be a growth spurt.
