Ha ha when you find your manual have a look for mine too  ;D

I'd prob push through and do EBT unless she's struggling.

Haha if only there was one right Haribo?!?

Yeah he's had a few meltdowns but is holding it together for the most part. Luckily it's not a preschool day. His normal Bt is 8pm, his normal WU is somewhere around 7.30am, this morning was 6.45am... So I was thinking 7pm BT.... What do you reckon? Still makes it a long day but that's an hour earlier BT than usual....

Tried to get him in as early as I could, which ended up being later than I hoped... Still, he was asleep by 7.45pm, so, I guess we now wait and see right?

I think someone could make an absolute mint, if they could customise instruction manuals for individual kids! I know there are sleep consultants out there, but even that is not an exact science. I totally feel like I'm winging it most of the time! DS had some Meltdowns today mainly in and around the car, didn't fall asleep en route yet seemed fairly much ok tonight at bedtime, no biggies, as you might expect with OT. I find his Wu is quite telling of if he's OT or not... His mood in the mornings when he wakes can speak volumes!

Well we got a 7.15am Wu (some coughing at 5.20 but think he was mostly still asleep, we are struggling with allergies and hay fever at the moment too...) so 11.25hr night. More would have been nice but what can you do right? Could have been worse I guess. Here's hoping he will catch up over the next few days!!

Yep no consistency here Haribo. I've had some crazy long nights once in a blue moon, so live in hope that means he CAN catch up when he really needs to!

Yes, 11.25 hrs would be considered a good night here! Jack is lsn though.

We seem to have taken another step deep into nap dropping. As well as doing 2  NNDs a week I also need to start capping his nap on nap days I think cos we've been getting some very early wake ups otherwise. I'm going to try capping at 45 minutes next week. Fingers crossed we get our nights back  - we've had some 4am wake ups this last week  :(

Yes it is :( He does chat /doze to himself after he wakes, but of course I'm awake from then, listening.

Sounds like you're almost through it, zoe. I'm quite looking forward to being done with it now.

I'm wondering if we will ever truly be done with it, haha... I mean there will always be the odd car nap I guess... And sickness etc always throws everything out. At least when you feel confident that they CAN recover from OT with ONS and/or an EBT it's not quite as bad. Think we might nearly be there, going by the random occasional huge sleep we will get. Most nights are around 11hrs though, which I guess is ok. Resigned myself to the fact my son is just really not a 12-13hr sleeper despite what I would like!

I'm sure the nights will lengthen...when they're about 13 yrs old  ;D

I'm trying a EBT tonight as we had another 5.30am WU wouldn't stay in bed or go back to sleep so 10.5 hour night x

hahaha... yeah... that will be right Haribo!   ;D

We have had some random nights again lately, some EW's (short nights, around 10.5hrs) but then a freakishly long night (13hrs) which I guess is a catch up.  I never know what to do after a extra long night.  If our normal BT is 8pm, I bring it forward to about 7.30pm if he has had a short night... sometimes it helps, sometimes not. What about after a long night, with a wake-up of 9am?  8pm seems a little bit early, he's "usually" doing a 12hr+ day, so what would you do?

We had this yesterday - a late WU of 9am (13hr ONS) so I did a 8.30pm BT... he was asleep pretty easily by 9pm at the latest, and woke at 7.20am today.... seems a bit of a grouch, hard to know if he's tired (likely) but what can I do??

Has anyone seen the 'new' report on ideal amounts of sleep by age group?  Makes me feel a little better!!

Hi

I didn't join new thread as it looks like we're done with 1-0 woo woo! But Rachsk I saw your post so thought I'd share :) when dd got to where your ds is in that I wasn't sure of what day length to do as nights varied I decided to go with set bt which was 6.30 to start with and by Xmas it was 7 as that suited us better (ds bt is 7.30) anyhow I aim to have Dd asleep by 7 everyday so pd is 6.50. The only time it took her longer to fall asleep was when wu had been 8.45! I guess what I'm saying is that at three she seems to be self regulating her sleep and set bt means I don't need to faff about with bt. There was some ot at first due to13h days (her longest on nnds was 11.5h prior to that) but she's doing well now.

Hang in there ladies. There IS light at the end of the tunnel!
