You may need a two nap day or it'll be early to bed? And then be same story tomorrow?

I know what you mean about teeth. It is such a long process that you can be medicating all the time.

No no no!!! I definitely don't want a repeat lol of course this happens the night I get to go out lol needless to say I'm exhausted!

So today is a 2 nap day to get back on track. I'm wondering if I went wrong on the routine yesterday. Do you have any suggestions? Maybe still OT by bedtime despite a long nap and 5 hr A to bed?

Today was just annoying lol

I did two naps and ended up with a 14.5 hr day with him fighting bedtime for 45 minutes!! Now he's twitchy so I'm definitely not looking forward to tonight. We were out most of the day but both naps were at home. I definitely miscalculated A times.

Today:
WU 6:21
S 10:05-10:49 am (woke up at a half hour but then dozed off while nursing had to wake him again)
S 2:54-4:31 pm (A 4:05; came home from the beach)
BT 9 pm (tried for 8:30 and he fought sleep even though he was clearly tired; very frustrating)

I'm not expecting a good night which is frustrating considering today was supposed to help the OT but may aggravate it ugh.

I honestly can't imagine doing all of this with two!!! I go crazy with one!

So I'm wondering how I can tell the difference when a nap is UT versus OT when on one nap?

Today he went down at 5 hrs A then woke at 33 then up after only 1.25 hrs  ??? He woke happy but annoyed when I tried to resettle.

Wondering if this is what u should aim for: (I rather do set times)

WU 7:30
S 1-3 pm (hopefully)
BT 7:30/7:45 pm

He's about to start part-time daycare and they nap at 12:30 though; in checking to see if he can nap at one or else I'll have to shift the day up.

I'm wondering how I know of my nap and bedtimes are ok in terms of OT vs UT. I'm getting 3NW which includes a ENW.

Total I did:
WU 8:35(slept in due to family function last night)
S 1:57-3:35
BT 9.09 pm (tried for 45 minutes)

 ??? Not sure why the fight to bed? Maybe I should have tried earlier? Residual OT from Fridat?

NW 12:49, 3:28, 5:49. Tossing and turning all early morning.

Could be molars. One looks like it's starting to break through. Hard to say bc he won't let me scope out the scene. I'll admit I don't reup meds at night.

I think the set routine you posted looks perfect and I do think it might be time to do a push to one nap and a more set routine as the alternating seems to not be helping. You could do a 2 nap day every 5/6 days if he's waking earlier and needs a bit of a catch up.

Honestly I think he's in an UT OT loop and he's waking at light cycles of sleep in the night.

Hugs xx

I can definitely start moving in that direction. Feels like DS is always in a UT loop lol

So I finally got a look inside his mouth after waking up with a slight swollen cheek. Looks like his top first molar and bottom first molar are starting to cut  :o

He has definitely been having some rough nights the past few days and getting tired easier. I'll try to push without pushing too much.

It really is! It's like a long torture for DSand for me to a lesser extent since I'm getting up too. Hoping they cut through soon!

Hi!

I'm not sure what happened yesterday as he only had one NW but then was up at 6 am after 10 hours of sleep! I re-dosed in the middle of the night too ???

Yesterday:

NW 10; 10:50; 11:55; 4:33; woke at 7:0( then drifted for for 20 minutes

WU 7:25 am
S 12:57-2:56 pm (A 5:12; tired and cranky. Drifted easily; briefly woke at 2 hrs)
BT 7:42 pm (A 4:45; cranky but could be bc of molars)

NW 1 am; up wide awake in a good mood at 6:10.

Maybe I let him nap too long? Not enough A before bed? Argh I can't seem to get it right well almost right considering the teething situation.

He's actually cutting 3molars!!!  :o
