1yo - screwed after illness - Pls Help!
« on: August 26, 2016, 19:49:38 pm »
My son is almost 14 months old. Until recently was on a wonderful routine with 2 long naps (1,5 h minimum) a day, wake up at 6 am, bed time 7.30-8pm.
He fell asleep independently, slept through the night - it was pure bliss! Though he did give signs that he is heading to 2:1 transition. Over couple weekends he took a 2,5 hour morning nap and was good till 7pm bed time.

The problem is this: He was sick on and off for 3 weeks. Now he falls asleep only on boob, wakes up 2-3 times at night and needs a boob to go back to sleep.
What should I start with and what should I do to help us settle back into good habits?
Thanks in advance!

It seems that two things may be important:
- he lost his settling skills so you can remind him with gradual withdrawal or wiwo method (look in FAQ)
- he is very very tired after the illness so probably needs to recover and may need shorter A again
