Any tips on how to get a 2 year old to sleep in the travel crib? We have the BabyBjorn but my toddler hasn’t used in over 6 months and just used to the home crib. In the past, he knocked it over and managed to get out and get on the bed to sleep with us. Planning on a getaway but afraid he won’t sleep in the travel crib!
My son was sleeping for 12 hours a night from 5-7 months, but then he got the flu and it’s been a little over a month now of sleep problems. When he had the flu, he was waking every two hours for about 5 days. Now he is down to 1-2 wakes per night, and occasionally will sleep through the night. But it’s so erratic. Any tips on how to get my guy back on schedule??
My baby has just started pulling to stand and I cannot get him to nap anymore! I put him down drowsy like I have always done but now he pops up when I lay him down. Then he stands and cries in his crib and will not settle. I try to pat his mattress to get him to come off the bars but no luck and he screams even more when I place him back down. Any advice for getting naps back?
Any tips for transitioning to the crib? Our 10 month old daughter is STILL in her rock n’ play because every time I’ve tried to put her in her crib she just stands up holding the rail and cries. I tried to let her fuss hoping she would put herself down to go to sleep and she alternated between playing in the crib and standing up crying for an HOUR.
My 15 mo has an ear infection and is having a lot of trouble sleeping through the night. I have to hold him if I want him to get a full night’s rest. I’ve tried laying him down on an angle so that he’s not laying flat but he still will wake up screaming until I hold him again. Is this just how it is when they have an ear infection? Any tips?
Hello! How do you put your baby to sleep? We have an almost 4 month old who can’t seem to fall asleep unless we bounce on a yoga ball while holding her horizontally. It’s really hard physically and can take up to 15 minutes, and then sometimes she wakes up when we put her down and we have to do it all over again. Not fun! I’ve read that you’re supposed to put a baby down drowsy but awake but she fusses and cries and squirms and does not fall asleep if she’s awake when we put her down. She’s currently sleeping in a rock n’ play and we’d like to transition to a crib soon. Looking for ideas so... More
Any tips to get baby to stay and sleep in his crib? When do they start sleeping through the night? My son is 8 months and we’ve been trying to get him to sleep in his crib but he wakes up and cries and we pick him up and bring him to our room. I know this probably isn’t the best thing to do but it’s the only way he’d go back to sleep. Help!
Pacifier advice please - I need to know the pros and cons of a pacifier for my 8 month old. My nanny thinks the paci would be really helpful during nap time. But I am against it because I want him to be able to fall asleep on his own, and not rely on the paci. Also, if he falls asleep and wakes up because it’s not in his mouth, that would become a problem. He is able to fall asleep on his own majority of the time, but every once in awhile he has a hard time falling asleep. Should I let the pacifier help him sleep or keep the pacifier out of the sleep scenario? What’s your experience been?... More
In the middle of sleep training, my nearly 8 month old hit a wicked regression, and for the past 3 nights has woken HOURLY. I nurse back to sleep bc my husband and I can't bear to listen to screaming the whole night. Has anyone else been through this? Is there a way to work through it quickly? Also for context, she just started crawling, sitting up, and pulling herself up to stand in the past 10 days.
Did anyone sleep train in a diff room in like a pack n play then eventually transition to the crib? I have a 2 year old that gets woken up every time I try and let my youngest (9months) cry a little to see if she’ll soothe herself. I end up with two awake crying babies. I was contemplating the idea of sleep training her in the basement in a pack n play then when she’s starting to sleep better transition back to her crib... anyone try anything like this before and was successful ? I’m desperate for ideas.
Need some help! A week ago my 4 month old started to wake up 9+ times a night and refuses to take her naps. She'll be up for 3-4 hours at a time during the day. Sometimes fussy, sometimes happy, always showing signs of being tired. It doesn't seem to be teething. There wasn't any changes to her routine. We've tried making her room dark, white noise, making sure she's not too hot/cold, swaddled, unswaddled. No matter what we try she just isn't having it. At night she wakes up constantly sometimes crying, sometimes wanting her binkie. I've kept get bedtime routine ... More
Those who used the Ferber Method to sleep train- how long did it take for your baby to fall asleep easily? (If you dont believe in sleep training, no need to chime in, I understand your point of view) Night 1 was 42 mins, Night 2 was 22 mins, Night 3 was 26 mins, and tonight Night 4 was 32 mins. Im getting very discouraged. I dont want to give up yet so will give it a week but everything I read says it works in 3 days. Its torture and I cry every night but am at my wits end with trying to get her to fall asleep easier. If its not better in a week Im done.
Sleep help! My daughter is 9 months old. I’ve heard of he 8,9,10 month sleep regression before. My first child didn’t hit a regression at this age but actually started sleeping through the night at 9 months. My daughter has never slept through the night and I don’t see any sight of sleeping more than 3 hours in a row even for quite some time. She is currently teething so I’ve been trying to be patient and comforting. She is waking up an hour after I lay her down for bed and up every hour after just about. I’m so exhausted I’ve been bringing her back to bed with me or sleeping in a recliner... More
