Hi!

So the 2 nap day put us back on track but then on one nap he did the following:

WU 7:53 am
S 12:53- 2:24 pm ( A 5; kept grabbing mouth and fighting sleep hard; woke crying at 40; woke up and had a meltdown)
BT7:27 pm (really crabby and tired)

NW 9:50, 2:57

Woke at 6:30 nursed him. Up and happy at 7

It's an 11.5 hr night. I'm wondering if he's capable of doing consistent 12 hr nights even on one nap. What do I do if he doesn't?

You hope the nap lengthens or you'll have the resort to a CN every few days to keep wake up from becoming too early.

How'd today go?

Hope it lengthens!

Today he woke at 7 am. Originally he woke at 6:30 but I managed to nurse him down but he woke less than a half hour later  ::)

NW 9:50, 3 am, 6:30 am

WU 7 am
S 10:18-10:53 am (A 3:18; seemed really tired so gave him a CN)
S 2:24-4:24 pm (A 3:31; tried to nurse to sleep but didn't let him. Críed a little. Semi woke at 40 crabby. Woke up at 1.5 fell asleep on the boob)
BT 8:47 pm (A 4:23; fighting sleep)

He seems to be hurting. Keeps grabbing his mouth, wants to nurse nonstop. I gave him Tylenol before his Nap which helped a little bit. Gave him Motrin before BT. Not sure what tonight will look like!

I think you need to get back to being consistent. That CN day was meant to be a one off to get on top of the OT to get back to one nap. Otherwise you are back to just guessing day by day what's happening and he will get all confused.   

Sounds like teeth are moving a bit. Poor wee man.

Yes! His teeth are bothering. Yesterday was a one nap day disaster but he fell asleep slightly earlier then only slept 50 minutes then rejected the CN  ::) so he ended up having a long A to bed. He woke at 7 and made it to 12:15 so hopefully a long nap

 Hi!

I have been switching between one and two nap days depending on the wake up. I'm wondering if that messes with the set nap routine. His one nap days are starting to lengthen but not enough for a 5 hr A to bed. It ends up being 5.5-6 hours sometimes :o

I end up with NW every 2-3 hrs then an EMW  ::) which then I have to do a two nap day to get back on track. How long does this typically last?

Oh and he's still teething molars  :-X

It does mess with the set routine. You're better only doing a two nap day every 4/5 days and pushing through on the others.   It usually lasts a couple of weeks IME.

Poor fella. Molars are awful x

Ok I can try hardest. The molars are making it harder to stretch him.

I know. It's awful for them. Even if you can do 2 one nap days then a one nap day?

It really is  :'( I have never seen him like this before.

Today we did one nap which went pretty well all things considered. So hopefully we will get a good enough night to do another one nap day tomorrow.

I don't think we appreciate how sore it must be. My 5yo is getting back molars now and has been so upset with the pain. Can't imagine a poor wee baby.

 :o they still teeth at 5 years old?! I thought there was a light at around 2-3 lol

Today I managed to push him to 4:45 but he was done for. He had a 12 hour night though which is great. OT and pain related NW but he still managed 11.5 hrs of sleep.

Do you think I should try a slightly earlier BT to avoid too much OT?

Well last night wasn't too bad...3 NW again but that's because we missed bedtime since we went swimming. We did two straight days of one nap days and he didn't do too bad. For me it's the longer A after his nap since he will only do about 1.5 hours. So after two days of one nap and longer A to bed, I get OT long waking and an EMW where he won't settle. Today was a two nap day which so far so good so bedtime is back at 8 p.m

So maybe 2 days one nap followed by a two Nap catch up day and then do three until he's handling the A time better.

How is he handling the 5 hour A time before the nap?
