She was 3 on the 31st August so not long ago. I know its a phase but god its a killer, especially when my anxiety is related to sleep  :'(

I know Hun, so hard watching them run on empty tho cos you know a crash will happen any time. Do you think we should switch her bedtime routine a bit and do bath before stories? She seems really settled at quiet time then she has her bath and its almost like it wakes her up again!! Never been an issue until now though, so stuck as to whether to just ride the possible phase and then decide x

Tiny improvement tonight in that I didnt have to go up and tell her off for messing around  ::)
Still taking a little while to settle, despite the ewu.
Lucky me, were in the caravan this weekend  :o ;D happy days lol
I know what you mean about them in your bed. So many times recently Ive been tempted as I know she will usually resettle, but Ive stuck to my guns and just been a zombie!!

Id do bath first then cuddles with stories, naturally an hour after a bath your body calms ready for sleep.
Oh well you might as well enjoy the caravan and not worry whilst her sleeps a bit off x

Shes at pre school today, Im at work.
As someone who has always done bath then straight to bed how should I play it? Her normal bedtime is 7, asleep within 10-15 mins. So we do quiet time from 6, bath 6:30, into bed 6:50-6:55. Quiet time tends to be reading or jigsaws.

Id do bath then into bedroom, pjs on. Read some stories have a cuddle then into bed.
For us we have bath, go downstairs have a cup of milk maybe a snack then some stories and bed.
Depends on what youd prefer x

Im just thinking of which way to play it if you say it takes an hour after bath for sleep etc. Would mean bath around 6 then its quite a long time until bedtime to be in her bedroom. However weve always stayed upstairs after bath, except for mega early bath when poorly etc. So hard to know how to play it I guess. I think Ill try your way and do bath and pjs at 6 then downstairs for quiet time and see how that goes x

She seemed to like stories before bed and she was more chilled, almost asleep on my knee. Saying that shes probably knackered with all the early mornings. I let her choose which way we did it, so we did supper when we got in from nursery about 5:45, then bath just after 6, pjs on by 6:25 then downstairs all snuggly for stories.

Worked for bedtime, still wide awake at 5:30!! Defo a development phase I think. She stays in her room til the sun comes on which is a bonus I guess. Im awake cos Ive heard her and I never go back to sleep sadly. So my days start then too  ::)
When she does come bouncing in shes full on singing and talking etc. Very busy child at the minute. I cant take bt any earlier than it is, especially as we have the clocks going back in a few weeks time!!
Just got to ride this one out again I guess x
