20 month old crazy night time- any help appreciated!
« on: July 10, 2020, 05:32:53 am »
Hi,
I wondered if anyone had any ideas on how to help?
My 20 month old day routine is pretty set in stone but what happens at night is anyones guess!

The last 24 hrs...
Breakfast And milk - 7 am
Snack - 10.30 am (usually fruit and breadsticks)
Lunch - 12
Nap 12.30-2
Snack - 3 ish
Tea - 5
Bedtime routine starts 6.15 (bath, stories)
Bed and asleep 6.45-7

Its his night wakings that are driving me mad! Im so exhausted as I also have a 4 year old (who is an amazing sleeper - 6.45-6.30 ish but doesnt get up until 7) My 20 month old is a different story!
Last night he was awake 1-2.30 am and then again at 5 and was awake until 6.30 am!
He wont be left alone in these periods and so I sit with him with a hand on his back. Sometimes hes awake 2-4 am, then up at 6am, sometimes he sleeps until 4.30 for the day if were really Lucky!
He has a pretty active day as hes outside in the park most mornings with his brother and in the garden or playing in our local park in the afternoon.
I just dont know what to do. Hes never really slept through and weve followed baby whisperer EASY plan since he was about 4 months and his bedtime routine since about 6 weeks old.
Hes always napped well in the day but his night time is crazy!
Any ideas??
Thank you!

Hi maybe if hes up at 7 and has a good nap the Bt needs to be pushed out a teeny bit? My second dropped all naps at 2 years old and sleep fab 7-7 but my first kept naps till 3 but slept 8pm-6.30am
