I agree with aishi  - we did a set BT with lily from that stage onwards and she regulated herself. It all kind of evens out in the end!

And rachsk8  - which report? I haven't seen it?

ETA: Just found it.  Wow  - with a LSN  LO, that's the first time I've seen jacks sleep fall firmly in the "normal" range  :)

The report I found is here : http://www.cleveland.com/healthfit/index.ssf/2015/02/how_much_sleep_are_you_getting_updated_sleep_recommendations_based_on_age_released_this_week.html

Thanks all.  Yes, first report that puts my DS in the "normal" range too!   :)  Though he's been from 10.5hrs-13hrs over the past week... go figure.

OK, I think a set BT might be our answer too. Do you PD right on BT or try and allow for them taking some time to get to sleep?  Just wondered after your comment Aishi - my DS usually takes from 20-45mins to go to sleep... do I need to allow for that?

I would rach. My dd takes ten mins to fall asleep (I know that thanks to brief period with video monitor) so I pd taking that into account.

Good luck. Even if it takes a bit of time to settle into its just a relief to set bt and leave it upto them to regulate!

Hi I haven't posted for ages. Just wonder if these are signs of 1-0. My girl transition to one nap at 11mths so I kind of predicted that she might stop napping at 2 yrs old. She is currently 2yrs and almost 2 mth. She is on this routine for the last 6mth

Wu 0645-730 (varies a lot)
Nap 1pm for 1.5 hr I have to wake her up otherwise I get night wake
Bedtime 1930 in bed but will fall asleep by 8 pm. ( no matter what time I put her in bed she needs 30mins to windown herself before dropping off to sleep unless she is super tired.)

No NW

Last week she has her first 2 days of NND at childcare.
Had massive tNtrum by the time we got her to bed it was 1930

Then suddenly on thurs she was at home I try to put her down at 1315 she happily go down but I can see on the video monitor that she was singing rolling around playing with her soft toys n not sleeping. I left her for 1.5 hr then got her up. She went to bed and fell asleep at 1855 that night and slept for 11.5 hrs straight. Then she repeat the same thing again the next day and only fell asleep at 1415 ( awake since 0615 - hasn't woke up so early for months).
She also recently hasn't been playing up at bedtime refusing to sleep until almost 2030 and waking up early at 0600.
Yesterday she went down for nap at 1330 and I let her sleep for 1.15 hr then bedtime 2015 waking up today at 0600..

What should I do? Is she doing 1-0? I am so not ready as I just had a baby who is 11wk old. I m so tired. Any advise pls?

Hi could she just need nap pushing a bit later and capping? We had a phase of 2.30pm nap for 45 before dropping. If she's happily doing quiet time alone and the later nap doesn't work then I'd let her rest but put her to bed earlier.

I just came on to post about my rubbish nights at the moment and my DS is 33 months old lol so poss not best to listen to me  ??? X

Ughhhhh us too!!  DS hasn't STTN in about 2 weeks now.  He's still napping at pre-school, but I don't notice a difference in his nights on nap days vs no nap days so I don't think that's it.  We go in and lay with him and he falls back asleep easily so I don't think he's UT.  I think we are just a pop now but I'm just too tired to deal with it lol

Hi everyone. Miraclelim - I agree  - try a later, capped nap. Hope that sorts it for you. Sleep is precious when you've got a really little one too.

Not sure what's going on with us. Jack is doing 2 NNDs a week at nursery, though randomly napped one of those days this week and we've had funny / short nights since. We've been capping at 45 minutes at home for a couple of weeks and it's worked really well, but he was also ill during this time.  Part of me thinks he slept better cos he was ill and now he's better he needs less sleep.  That's happened with us before, and my daughter was the same.

Anyway, rambling a bit. He's also turning 2 in a couple of weeks so I'm aware it could be developmental too.  I'm resisting the urge to tweak right now....

Hang in there Ladies, yes it does pass, just not bloomin' well quickly enough. Thankfully it is the last transition!!! Here's hoping for some lovely long 13 hour nights for you when it's over, that bit was reeeeeally good ;) x.

Thanks Vicki, but jack only needs 11.5 - 12 hrs sleep in 24. Mind you, a night that long would be amazing too :)

Another 5.30am start here.... The urge to tweak is winning.  Might try a 30 minute nap today and see what that does.....
