Later Naps and early wake ups
« on: January 09, 2018, 18:10:39 pm »
My 18 mo lo usually wakes at 645/7 naps from 12-2 and is in bed by 7. Lately he was napping shorter from 12-130 so I tried pushing back the nap to 1215/30 but he would just wake at 2 and it took him longer to fall asleep then it did at 12!  He also has been waking earlier everyday.. 630,615! So then I tried doing a later bedtime at 730 but heís waking even earlier in the morning. It seems that sometimes if I can get him into his crib right at 12 he sleeps 1215-215 so today I tried that and it took him 30 mins to fall asleep finally at 1230 and today he was up early at 615 so I thought for sure heíd fall right asleep. Now Iím just stumped as what to do. His nap needs to be 12 1230 at latest beucause he needs to be up by 2 for school pick up.

Hi

At 18 months there is a huge sleep regression so could just be that, maybe just stick with one time and ride it out x

Ah ok! It will pass and go back to the old routine or will the sleep needs change from now on? How long does the regression last? Iím still getting him into crib at 12 but sometimes heís up until 1230 playing and chatting. But Iím just trying to stick to same routine and not change it too much.

Ah I have just posted on your other thread about this... also suggested the 18 month regression. I would stay with the same routine and if he is chatting then leave him to do that.

Ok so donít change the routine ? Heís hsppy in his crib itís just taking him a bit to fall asleep. Today he went in at 12 fell asleep at 1220 and slept until 245!! Which is late for him. Then it took him a while to fall asleep tonite at 745 probably due to the late nap but again he was quiet just playing and rolling around.
