I'm wondering what other's experiences were?

 He has been fighting sleep for up to an hour when he is obviously tired. Naps are up and down; some days they are great and some days they are short. His A times seem to vary day by day despite me being consistent with nap time.

The NW I think are teeth related bc he whimpers a lot and seems to resettle after we give him a dose of Motrin. I also wonder if its mixed with UT or OT; which I guess if its the latter that's a biproduct of teething. His gums are a little swollen and hes starting to bite random objects a lot lol

I would say I was doing more set naps and bedtime but also relying on a times

But because his naps and bedtime were in the same range everyday it made for a pretty vonstsient routine:

This is what was his usual routine:

WU 7 am
S 12:30-2:30 pm (sometimes 1.5)
BT 7:45-8 pm (depending on nap)

Lately he's been doing anything from 5.25-6.25 A with a nap
Of 1.5-2,5 then bed around 8-8:30 sometimes 9!

I would also say molars... it was awful for us.  It seems like you're trying to be consistent which is what most sleep coaches say to do during these blips. You're doing great mama! And motrin was our best friend until all molars popped.

I remember coming on the boards to wonder why it would take so long for him to fall asleep at BT (30-60mins) when it used to take 15! Part of that was as they get older and well into toddlerhood, it's a common thing... 30-45 mins to fall asleep. That's been what we experience except when we have no nap days.

I think I mentioned before but you want to aim for nap within 30 mins, and BT within an hour (some say 30 mins).  It's up to them when they fall asleep but the more consistent you are now, the easier it'll be when teething/illness/travel/development passes.

Yea I think you both are right. Yesterday he played a bit of catch up from an OT weekend but he did:

WU 7:30
S 12:45-2:45
BT 8 pm

He slept until 1:45 then we redosed but he was up every 1.5-2 hrs whimpering and tossing until he woke at 7.

Of course today I got home late to put him down after a play date that went longer and he slept from 1-2:30 broken then resisted bed until 8 when I was aiming for a bit earlier  😩
