I am a SAHM with a 2yo (who has always been champion napper/sleeper) and an almost 3 month old. I am struggling with (amongst other things) to get the 3mo on some sort of schedule. I COMPLETELY realize she is still very young and is adjusting to being alive but I feel like I cannot give her sleep schedule the focus it needs with a toddler running around. Currently she is exclusively BF but I a... More
My 4 year old started waking up in the middle of the night going on 3 weeks ago. He runs to our bed and insists on sleeping with us. Sounds cute, but it’s not. He kicks, flings his arms, lays on top of us. My husband and I haven’t had a good sleep since. I thought I tackled the sleep when he was a baby, I don’t know what this regression is. How do I stop it? I’ve tried to bribe, Ive even tried ... More
Good hello everyone! Any sleep training methods/books you all would recommend? My LO is 7 weeks old. From birth, we have been working on sleep training and getting him to understand the difference between day and night and sleeping in his bassinet. We were making progress but at 6 weeks, he went through a sleep regression and no longer wants to sleep in his bassinet. If we give in and have him... More
My 10 month old daughter always seems cold at night. I dress her in a fleece pajama with covered feet and the temp says 77 in her room. Her hands and cheeks and ears are chilly when I check her before bed. But If I add a small blanket it seems to make her very warm. Anyone struggling with this?
My LO is 3 months old and we bathe him every other day as the doctor said he doesn’t need a daily bath. On the day we do bathe him he sleeps longer at night, 8pm-5:30am when we don’t bathe him he sleeps 8pm-2-3am. Can we bathe him daily to help his sleep?
Hello everyone. My husband and I live in a one bedroom apartment in Glendale. The rent is $1600. For now we cant move out of here for several reasons. Now I am 6 weeks pregnant and I am worried is it ok to share the bedroom with newborn baby?? Has anyone done that?
I have a 15 month old girl. Do you let your child sleep with her earrings . My mother in law came to visit and asked whether i take out her earrings at night. I said, no. Im originally from Africa so i slept with my earrings. My husband is white so its two different cultures. Baby sleeps through the night with her earrings in with no problems. Should I take them out?
My LO is 3 months old and we have been swaddling him since birth. He moves around so much so that is the only way he sleeps. At around 2 months he would sleep from 8pm-3am eat then sleep until 7:30-8ish. I am trying to transition him from the swaddle because soon he won’t be able to use it anymore. Last night was the first night and he woke up every 2 hours. Not fully awake but fussy where I ne... More
I don’t know if she just has insomnia or if I’m doing something wrong but bed time is a huge battle that lasts for two hours and strips me from having any alone time. I’m a single parent so I don’t have anyone helping me get her to bed. She throws a fit if I leave the room so I’m sitting here until she falls asleep. She’ll roll around in the bed, talk to herself, sing, play with her stuff anima... More
Any advice on how to get a 4 year old to sleep back in their room. Made the biggest mistake of our lives letting her come to our room because she was scared.....now we can’t get her back. She screams and cries and says she scared and doesn’t want to be in her room by herself. I feel bad because the look in her eyes is like she’s terrified....we tried night lights...flash lights...leaving the do... More
Our baby is 16 months and has a convertible crib. Just wondering when to transition her to the “toddler” stage. She sleeps through the night with only cry-outs when she can’t find her pacifier (separate problem) and sleeps with a blanket but no pillow. Our second is due Feb 1st and I was just wondering if it would be better to try the transition now rather than after the new baby comes.
I am wondering if it will help them get tired out to sleep better or if it is going to make it harder to calm down to go to sleep?
