19.5mo sleep gone crazy
« on: November 15, 2016, 01:27:04 am »
We've been using Baby Whispering since DD was 3wks and it has been great, but this one I can't figure out.  She went down to 1 nap at 17mo and was in a pretty good routine with BT around 7PM and waking between 6-7AM.  3 weeks ago we started a round of illness and teething and now her naps are erratic, NW, EW, and resisting going down.  It's like one day she just refused to lay down and hasn't looked back.  We've tried rocking her and (unfortunately) put her in our bed when we just couldn't make it any longer.  We did stayed with her while she cried 1 night, and it worked for a few days, but we haven't had the stamina to do that every time she wakes though the night.  Any suggestions or encouragement are appreciated. 

What our normal day was:
6-7AM-- WU
7-7:30-- Eat
7:30-11--Play
11-11:30-- lunch
2-3 hour nap, usually up by 3.
7PM BT

Hi there, what times does she nap? 3 hours is quite long she could be UT at BT, are things any different depending on nap length?

Today she napped from 11-2, but it's typically been 12-3.  We're going to aim for a 7PM bedtime tonight and see if that helps.  Last night she fell asleep just after 7 and did sleep all night, but woke up early.  Today I started wondering if she has finally reached a point of needing less sleep.

It's hard when you enjoy the peace of a nap too lol! I'd prob try nap 12 and maybe cap at 2.5 hours. We did have set nap times and BT at this age x

Thank you Zoe.  Yeah, it's been a tough transition and I know she has a lot going on developmentally too.  We are just starting to make more of an effort toward potty training, and for our 1 wake up last night, she did need to go potty.  She's also working on her canines.  We are going to try capping her nap today.  Thank you again for the suggestion!

Teeth have a lot to answer for could just be down to those! Plus like you say massive developmental stuff. x
