2 yo sleep messed up
« on: November 17, 2017, 22:27:26 pm »
Hi, my girl just turned 2 and for the last two months we are going through a rough patch with her sleep. She has really hard time falling asleep at night, it takes her sometimes up to 1.5h. We try to put her in bed around 8.30 pm and shed stay up till 10.00. It takes me sitting with her in the room to fall asleep or her daddy sitting by the door.
Then she wakes up sometimes around 6.30 and might settle down and sleep till 7.30 or 8.00. She naps around 1.30 and some days its really easy some days she wont nap at all. I try to keep her naps 1.5-2h but ita really hard as some days she wont fall asleep until 3pm.

I just feel like Ive completely lost control over the situation and I need help to get back on track.

Thanks,
Kat

Hi sorry youve had no replies yet.

What are you aiming for with regards to WU and BT?

Hi Zoe, Id love to have 8 to 7.30-8.00 sleep if possible and a 1.5 h nap.

A lot of los this age need a 13 hour day so on 8am WU you might be looking at 9pm BT. Would you say shes average sleep needs?

At the moment if shes eventually getting up at 8am then she might not be ready for a nap until 2/3pm so then your whole day is shifted late if that makes sense.

Personally Id get her up at the 6.30 WU go for a nap at 1pm then BT 7.30, and see if you can shift her day back again. Yes she might be tired from a shorter night if shes not dropped off until 10pm but you could start with nap around 12.30 pm and have her up by 2.30pm.

It could also be the 2 year developmental leap they have sleep shenanigans around birthdays and half birthdays. x

Thank you so much. The idea of waking her earlier and starting working around it is really good and Ill try this first thing tomorrow.
Zoe, youre a star.
