fingers crossed for a good night for you! DS2 asked me to take him to bed at 6.30pm the other night, said mummy Iím tired and my legs are tired. But then still up in the night! Developmental and growth spurts I think x

The days are getting so bad too. She gets so grumpy by tea time itís horrible  :'(
Iíve turned the night light off tonight to see if that helps, it is quite bright. When we are in the caravan her bunk is really dark and she doesnít have a problem with it and sheís always been in a dark room up until recently when she experienced Ďscaredí for the first time.
Iím running out of ideas. I was reading an old post on here earlier and someone was having similar issues with their 4 yr old. Someone suggested pushing them really over tired by moving bedtime later by over an hour, gradually over a few days and then sticking to the really late bedtime, despite the wu times!! Apparently it can help reset the body clock.
Iím not sure if my littly is too young at 3 to try this and I donít want to mess just now with the daylight savings happening this week.
Have you heard of this Zoe? X

Iíd prob try moving BT later by 15 mins each day to take into account clock change but maybe stick an odd CN in. I have heard of it but never tried it, worth a try maybe!?

I turned the blue light off out sun clock itís too bright and blue light is more disturbing for sleep. We leave hall light on and have a red separate plug in light in both boys rooms as reds and oranges are more sleep inducing x

Thanks hun. It isnít a gro clock, itís a Mickey Mouse night light with sun and moon feature that works like gro clock if that makes sense. Iíd heard about blue light so switched to the lamp but think it was just a little too bright. If it goes badly tonight I may try a small orange plug in x

Itís a killer. Weíve extended her bed today just in case and sheís got a new single duvet on and a proper pillow!! Itís Disney frozen so hoping to use the bribe factor  :-\ also moved her bed off the wall as I thought it was cold  ::)
Who knows eh?

Bless her, I watched her on the monitor waking up and she was admiring her new bedding and when I went inshe was so proud of herself and said Ďdo I get a token?í I gave her tonnes of praise. Fingers crossed she keeps it up 🤞
