What is his/her routine?  Does he/she still nap during the day?  Independent sleeper?

Always been an independent sleeper, good routines. No naps anymore, since she was about 30 months.
She is in bed for just before 7 and usually asleep wishing 10 mins. Our issues are she now has night wakings, not every night tho, and she is terrible for ewu, around 5-6 am
I know itís a phase but just wondering how long this one usually lasts 🙈

Zoe, they are such hard work  :o
I have to admit, her mouth is always in overdrive!!
Why has landed in our house so we get a million questions at bedtime! Just when youíre exhausted!
The NW we got very strict with and now use a reward chart for stays by in bed unless she really needs us and fingers crossed it worked so far.
We also use a night light with a sun and moon in to determine bedtime and morning time and she seems ok with it so far. I swear theyíre one step ahead of us at this age and no nap time for us to recharge!!
Good luck, weíre all in it together x

As we speak!!! We had a NW/ewu??!! Crying for no reason ten demanding me not daddy!! She got a telling off and no reward sticker today and surprisingly she was the best behaved getting ready today as she knew sheíd crossed the line!!
She has apparently been v good at nannas today and mum suggested I gave her a sticker reward and I said no cos I donít want to confuse her and let her think itís related to last nights fiasco! Only so much their brains can compute at this age!!
Nanna Hayes the thought that littly is ever in trouble!!

Another quick question? She sometimes doesnít seem tired at her normal 7pm bedtime, should I push it back or just carry on? She averages an 11 hour ish night these days with the odd 12-12.5 hr maybe once a week. Iíd hate to push her too much and risk an ot. Hard to know whatís a phase or whatís new routine is t it? X

Thatís what I was thinking hun. Sheís just started messing a bit, still in her bed, so far anyway. She was always really ready for sleep and would pass out almost straight away, but hubby and I have noticed the last week or so she is taking around 15 mins to settle some nights and is occasionally needing a gentle reminder that itís time to lie down and sleep. This usually does the trick and she tends to settle soon after this. What I will say is she never shuts up  :o even as Iím leaving the room sheís still talking to me lol. Very sweet as itís mostly love you mummy, but I figure she just knows how to gets round me lol. Doesnít stop me telling her off tho lol x

In theory she should be in her knees. Sheís been up since 5:45 and had a full on day at my mums. Spent the afternoon in the park but sheís still avoiding sleep. Iím knackered cos it sets my anxiety off and I donít sleep  :'(
Had a massive row with hubby this morning so had a really horrible day at work and now messing again at bedtime  :'(

Awhh rough day honey, just breathe itís just a phase and it will pass but I know itís tough. Weíve made the mistake of letting DS2 into our bed and now Iíve got that habit to break.

When was she 3? It could be the developmental shenanigans that go with birthdays!? x
