Wake up in morning getting earlier and earlier
« on: June 04, 2018, 10:44:16 am »
My 22 mo old is waking earlier and earlier every morning since his naps have been all over the place. I have another post in reference to his nap situation which is that heís not getting much of a nap on a few days of the week due to early pick up for my older son. Iím assuming the ew is from ot at this point but not sure how to help him. Any suggestions? Yesterday he was up around 630 only slept 10 mins in car I got him to bed by 645 but he was up today around 615! Today is a day where heíll need to be up by 1:10 to go get his brother too.

Sounds like you might have to adjust your day to suit the nap requirements - could you do a 6-6 rather than 7-7?

Hmm I never thought of that. Heís still not really napping well. On the days heís up early we are still struggling with nap. I thought he might go down easier earlier if heís up earlier in morning but so far no luck. Is the earlier waking due to ot?

Sorry to not be much help but weíve had numerous episodes of ew and I found nothing really helped. Ours were earlier than yours though at around 5:30. I just tried to help her catch up at nap time or if that wasnít possible an ebt helped.
Weíre on the nap drop train big time now and things seem to have evened out. Our issue now is if we have even the smallest 30 min nap, our bt is epically late, by 1.5 hrs!!
Sorry I digressed, but what Iím trying to say is I think ew are all part of them working towards the final nap drop. Iíd read it was a lengthy process for some 🤦‍♀️😳

Thanks for sharing. Iím hoping heís. It dropping his nap at 22 months already and that as soon as my older one is done with school heíll go back to taking a good nap and not waking so early!

Iíve been able to put him down later at regular time at 1 the past couple of days and he falls asleep easy but heís only sleeping an hour! Today will be a short early nap day (if he falls asleep). Todayís also the first day in a while heís slept later in the morning. Heís all over the place

Some do start to reduce their naps and if it helps improve night sleep aka stops early wake ups thatís a good thing. However I do also think the ewu is phases as Iíve tweaked all over the place when it happened here and nothing sorted it. My nephew, now 4, dropped naps altogether around 18 months!! He also went through the 5-5:30
Wake ups and they never shifted bt from 7-7:30!! He looked like a zombie for a while but he got through it. He would never even nod off in a car!!

Just posting a follow up. Weíve made it past the 4 weeks that I had to shorten los nap due to school pick up now school is out but lo isnít napping well now :(. He was a great 2 hour napper prior now heís dong maybe 40 mins to 1 hr 15 mins sometimes he wonít go down at all!
Well today at nap time he climbed out of his crib for the first time and wouldnít nap. He tried to climb out again at bedtime and got stuck and was screamingly. Thankfully he was too tired from not napping to keep trying but I had to take out his old sleep sack. I hope this works. Is it time to put him in a big boy bed? I was hoping to get him back on track with naps first before trying to do the bed transition.

I would move him to BBB if he's started to climb. I know sometimes it feels like too many changes at once but in some ways it's better to have everything messed up in one go rather than two separate times for the routine to get messed up.

Thatís true ! But we are going away for a week next week and I need him to still be in a crib (the one that Iíve rented) I canít transition him while away but as soon as we get back Iíll have the bed ready to go! I remember when my older one transitioned heíd just get out over and over lol. Not looking forward to this lol

You never know though, all LOs are different, mine never got out of his BBB once. It was probably months before he even thought of it - even then I think it was me telling him he could get out (to use the potty) that gave him the idea rather than him just deciding to do it.

He hasnít tried to climb out again and Iíve been putting him in his sleep sack most of the time to make sure he canít (itís a lightweight huge one for kids 3-6 years old). Iím just not in a rush to move him to a big boy bed just yet heís not even two but he is very big for his size. Otherwise heís always liked his crib so why rush if heís not climbing out right?
Weíve just returned from vacation where he only napped in his stroller late in the day around 2 for 40 mins. So Iím trying to get him back on track with a new routine at home before I switch him to a bed. When los who are just turning two start not going down for nap until later around 130/2 how long do you let them nap before it messes with bedtime ? If he does a morning wake up of 7 naps from 130-3 and is in bed by 8 that doesnít seem to bed.
Whatís a typical routine at this age with a times and bedtimes and morning wake ups and nap length?
Iím trying to create a new bedtime routine with his older brother and itís been a bit chaotic.
