I have an almost 3 month old who will not sleep earlier than 9:30pm. I start his bedtime routine at 7pm. He is usually wanting to feed for this whole time. Sometimes he won’t settle till 10:40 or later. He might sometimes sleep for a five and hour stretch. Sometimes only 3 and will sleep for 1.5 to 2 hours again. Any suggestions on how to get him to sleep earlier?
We are thinking of transitioning our 14mo to a floor bed and would love some feedback. Right now, we close the door of her bedroom for nap time and at night but I am wondering what happens when they wake up. I am sure she will be knocking on the door which is not really the idea of the montessori bed. Thanks :)
When my baby was younger she used to wake up happy from her naps and sometimes from sleeping at night. But now, she cries every time she wakes up. Even when she wake up not crying, once she sees me, then she starts crying. But when she sees someone else like my sister for instance, she’d be happy. She sees my sister as someone who often brings her joy and laughter because every time they’re tog... More
Please share any tips or tricks for sleep training a 3 year old. We just changed her crib to a toddler bed so she can get down from her bed now! Any tips would be helpful!! She needs me to sit or lay by her bed in order to fall asleep, & is waking throughout the night now! Thanks!!
So my daughter is 2 and 1/2 months old and she had been sleeping in her Rock and play and then we got a crib she doesn't like to sleep in a crib very much I think it's due to the way she's able to sleep in the Rock and play. That she doesn't like sleeping in a crib but recently she's been sleeping in her bouncer my question is do you think that it will make it easier for he... More
I’ve been at a loss on when I should transfer my son out of his crib into a toddler bed. He’s learned boundaries, so I don’t think he would fall out of it. I was going to get one with raised sides anyway. We want to surprise him with a race car toddler bed for his 2nd birthday, but I’m unsure if that’s too early. Does it really just depend on the kid? What has been your experience?
My 5 1/2 month old won’t sleep in crib anymore. Could it be separation anxiety? He’s fine when he’s playing in his play spot. He’s ok with me leaving. He’s also really good about being held by other people. He does get really excited to see me in other peoples laps but he doesn’t fuss. Nap time I would rock him until he fall asleep and then put him down. If he would wake up he would roll o... More
If you’re like me and love co-sleeping but also love cuddling your hubby here’s a cool tip. We bought one of those toddler bed rails and placed it on my side of the bed. I placed a small but big enough blanket over the rail, extending it over the top of the rail up to about halfway off the bed. Tucked the blanket in just a little with my hand in between the bed and the rail (stopping my baby’s ... More
My son turns 3 months tomorrow! He’s been fighting naps, to the point that he will only nap for 5 minutes then wake up crabby as ever. He sleeps good at night but during the day he’s just awful. When he’s trying to go down for naps he flails back and forth, cries, falls asleep, then continuously does this. Idk what to do...I’m so drained 😞
My 11 montg old is now having a hard time sleeping through the night. She had some night terror episodes around 3-6 months but has been fine since. But this whole week has been putting her to bed, she sleeps fine for awhile, then wakes up crying and thrashing, has to be put in bed with me, and even then thrashes around and doesn't get much rest. I'm not sure what I can do to help or why... More
I have a 4 1/2 month old who will go down at bedtime fine and sleep for a couple of hours very peacefully without much movement but then all of a sudden he starts thrashing around; legs in the air, trying to roll vigorously from side to side, hands into his face, etc but while he is doing this his eyes are still closed. I usually end up picking him up and having to rock him for awhile before p... More
Advise to teach my almost 3mo old son to sleep on his own? I’ve been sleeping in the spare bedroom with him and nurse him when he wakes (about every 1 1/2-2hrs at a time). But when will he be able to sleep on his own? I don’t mind the feeding but I haven’t shared a bed with my husband in almost 3 months. Is this a progress where I just keep putting my son in the crib till eventually he learns t... More
Hi - my 5-week old can only take naps and sleep after feeding and she’s using my breasts to soothe so it feels like she’s always on me nursing. I wait until she’s in deep sleep before putting her in her crib because she wakes up and cries and wants to nurse if I do it any sooner. So she’s on me for another 20mins after nursing. Any ideas on how to wean her off and get her to sleep on her own? T... More
My son just turned 4 months and he can officially roll. He’s had this new found ability to roll for about a week but now that he can roll he refuses to sleep in his crib. I rock him to the point of being sleepy and when I put him down he immediately rolls and wakes up! In fact the only way I have been able to get him down is by putting him to sleep on my bed! I am so worried he will never sle... More
