Anybody else’s kids sleep like this?
I co-sleep with my twins.... actually, one sleeps along side of me while the other is on top of me. I AM PARANOID ABOUT SIDS. And this might b contradictory but my issue is that what if they’re not next to me and something happens rather than when they are and a strong sense of mother’s intuition takes over.... And a large part is... they won’t sleep any other way. Opinions?
Anyone have problems their toddler sleeping at night? Any solutions? My son was doing great but then got to the point where he was waking up around 2a-4a. Then it got earlier to 11p. Now it’s about an hour after he goes down. Sometimes he wakes up just whining. Other times he’s screaming. I’ve tried putting him down earlier and later, got a fan for his room because he’s very temperature sensitive, tried giving him a full bottle and/ or a snack and nothing has worked so far. I’m running out of ideas and we’re exhausted. It’s been progressively getting worse over the last two weeks after he was sick.
Starting in September my little guy, who’s now 13 months, stopped sleeping through the night. He’ll wake up and be awake for 1.5–2hrs. I know he’s working on molars and going through a leap, but I was wondering if anyone else has ever had this happen and what you did? We have stretches of a few nights where he will STTN but then we’re right back to night wakes. I’ve adjusted his nap schedule, but no matter what I do, it doesn’t seem to be working. He isn’t rocked, nursed, etc. to sleep. No pacifier either. He puts himself to sleep fine at nap and at bedtime as well.
I’m in desperate need of some advice/support/ideas! I didn’t sleep at all last night😞 I have a 4 year old daughter and a seven month old son and every time their dad travels for work our nights are pure chaos. Normally I share room with the baby and my husband with our daughter (only because we can’t get her to stay in her own bed). But when I’m alone with them I’m at a loss. They are both really sensitive sleepers and keep waking each other up, all night. I’ve tried separate rooms, separate beds in the same room, shared bed etc. I just can’t keep my daughter in her own bed/room no matter how much we talk about it during the day and she understands and is okay with not disturbing the baby. And the baby is constantly teething or gassy or have something else going on so he will not slee... More
My son is 6mo in two weeks. We had started Cry It Out this week and have been pretty traumatic but been gradually getting better. My concern is tho he doesn't nap well during the day. He's one of these erratic crap napper (30m each) and I've been trying to get him sleep in his crib too instead of in my arm since that helps him to sleep at night as well from what I researched. He cries and cries and cries all day long to fight to nap in his crib.. I'd love to enjoy this baby faze as ppl tell me he's getting to more fun age but I'm just so burned up.i feel I failed many tasks each day/nap I end up having him in my arm napping and not getting any work done. Any good tip or encouragement is much much appreciated..
My husbands daughter is from a previous relationship. She is 4 years old and still sleeps with her mom whom she’s with half the time and we are trying to have her sleep on her own but having a hard time. She has the bottom bunk in hers and my sons (her step brother’s) bedroom but only will sleep on the couch and will wake up numerous times all night crying for daddy. She says that she’s scared of monsters then says she can’t breathe if we try to let her cry it out. Any suggestions would help.
Any tricks to get my newborn to nap in her bassinet/ rock and play for more than 30 minutes? Her eyes pop open almost 30 mins on the dot just about every time! I try once or twice a day and then I have her in the carrier on me for her other naps bc I know she’ll sleep 1-2.5 hours on me. I dont want her to get overtired! Will she be able to fall back asleep on her own with age or is there something I should be doing?
I have taken off work for the past 6 months to stay at home with my baby. I am getting ready to return to work in January. My baby still has trouble napping and sleeping when I'm not around or next to him. Has anyone else ever had this issue? What do you do? I really want him to have a smooth transition to daycare, not sure what to do?
Have you dealt with an overtired newborn? How did you overcome? My little is 4 weeks old and sleeps during the day but seems overtired at night she won’t sleep and is super alert and fussy. We can’t put her down without her crying. And recommended things to try? Schedules on how to sleep during the day for a better night?
My 5 month old just started sleeping in his crib (pediatrician recommended for safety issues). When we first put him down he's fine and will sleep 3-4 hours before waking up to nurse but after that we can't put him down again. As soon as he realizes he's not in my arms he wakes up screaming and won't go back down so I end up having to holding him if I want him to get any sleep/stop crying. Any advice on how to get him back down would be appreciated! I should mention, as soon as I put him down on his back he flips onto his belly and that sometimes wakes him up but he will not stay on his back! I don't keep anything in the crib except his pacifier. Please help this exhausted mom and dad!! Thanks in advance.
On average how many hours do your infants sleep in a 24 hr period? My almost 4 month old sleeps between 8-12 hours every 24 hours. It’s usually around 10 hours. We’ve tried various methods consistently for his daytime naps, but at most he sleeps for 30-45 minutes maybe 2-3 times a day. We try laying him down for naps 5 times a day. At night he sleeps for longer stretches of time, so the bulk of his sleep happens at night. But still, after his one long stretch of sleep, he wakes up every 45 - 90 minutes. He is developing incredibly fast it seems (sitting and standing on his own), he’s happy and very alert, but he does look tired throughout the day. He does not have ear infections or health complications. Wondering if anyone has similar experiences and if there is any cause to be concerned?
FTM here. My 1 month old is very alert and has been since she was born. She has her days and nights all figured out which is great, but she refuses to take naps during the daytime. I mean this crazy child will be awake for 5-6 hours before we can get her to sleep. Of course, this means she gets overtired and extremely cranky. We swaddle her, we turn the lights off in the room, we try to feed her to mellow her out, we rock her, etc. etc. and she always rouses herself after 10 minutes or so (with a few exceptions) and starts screaming. Help! How do I get this baby to take daytime naps?!
I am having terrible mommy insomnia. I was having it when my baby was just born for the first three months. I rarely slept! Then it got better but now that I’m back to work, it’s back! My baby sleeps through the night but I can’t call asleep😭 I have tried everything - yoga, tea, wine, breathing techniques. I’m exhausted! Looking for any out of the box ideas to help!
My son is 2.5 and has always slept in bed with me & hubby. We don’t go to sleep until he falls asleep (I know). We have his crib beside our bed but I tried it before, put him to sleep then laid him in it. He wakes up later and freaks out pretty badly. We will be moving in a month or two where he will have his own room and I’m hoping to have him in it. He is the last of three kids so I admit I keep him closer An give in more. But we would love to get him sleeping in his own bed, and I’ll b honest I can’t handle walking out and letting him cry it out. Any suggestions?
