So my LO is 15 months. He is a GREAT sleeper...on the regular he sleeps from 9:30p-9:30a. However...he’s teething right now with molars. Chewing on hands, drool everywhere & soaking bibs...& he’s been waking up early (between 4a-6a) for the past week. I give him Motrin before bed & seems to give relief for a bit. When he wakes up he won’t lay back in crib...I will let him sleep on m... More
I have a 3 year old who absolutely hates going to sleep at night. Every night is a struggle to get her to go to sleep. I’m pretty sure that if it was up to her, she’d stay up until midnight every night. Her nap time is 8 o clock, which I think is reasonable, and only takes one nap during the day around noon, for about 1.5 hours. We’ve tried no sugary snacks after 5, lavender oils, night time ...

My son just turned 6 months old and at his check up his pediatrician suggested we start sleep training. A little back story- my baby has been a horrible sleeper since he was born. He’s wakes every 1-2 hours, he only falls asleep if my husband or I hold him, and sleeps in his pack n play next to our bed. I really don’t know how I feel moving him into his own room. I know eventually we have to do... More
My lo is 9 months and she sleeps in her crib every night but struggles. She has a routine that we follow, it’s quiet and peaceful but she cries when I place her in the crib. As soon as she is done her last bottle of milk she wants to play and she rolls around. A couple minutes after that she falls asleep. But around 2-4am she wakes up for a bottle again. Last night she woke up crying with her a... More
I still breastfeed my 8 month old to sleep at night. She wakes up about once a night for a feeding. How do I get rid of this so other people can put her to sleep and not just me.
I have tried literally every trick in every “book” I can find, my daughter just cannot sleep through the night. A solid 2 hours has become a blessing because usually she wakes up every 1-1.5 hours. I’m a single mom, so it’s all on me. I have gone to a sleep psychologist, I’ve tried all the cry/no cry methods, a consistent routine, consistent naps during the day, etc. Currently I am trying a no ... More
I still need to nurse my 19 months old before she goes to sleep in the day time and most of the time she would wake up in an hour. I will then go to pick her up and continue to breastfeed her back to sleep. But she wont really fall back to deep sleep. Once I take off my boob, she opens her eyes. She sleeps well better in the night. She can go to sleep by herself as long as I lie beside and only... More
Our toddler was napping about 1.5 hours each day. He's now almost 22 months and it's an hour if we're lucky. Wondering if this is a regression or if it's just a natural decrease that occurs at this age.
My 5 month old has been rolling in her summer sleep Merlin’s Magic Sleep Suit, so we have still put her in the heavier, bigger winter one. She has started trying really hard to roll in that one as well, so I called the company and they recommended I transition her out of that one too. They suggested keeping the room really cool and putting her in 2 cotton sleepers and a sleep sack to give it we... More

My kids are 19 months apart my oldest is 4 and my youngest will be 3 in April. We recently transitioned our youngest (son) to a toddler bed, and since then he and our oldest (daughter) will get up multiple times a night to play. Once they are up there is no turning back! My husband and I have tried the clocks that change color, positive reinforcement/rewards, consequences (ie-no story time, tv... More
How much sleep does your 3yr old get? We recently started experimenting with “quiet time,” rather than nap time. I have mixed feeling about it - on the plus my twins are going to bed around 7pm rather than 9. They also go down 100% easier and quicker. However, I’m worried they are not getting enough sleep ... they generally will wake up between 5 and 6 in the morning. They sometimes get cranky... More
My son is a sensitive little boy. We been co-sleeping for 3 years and recently started him on his own room. The start was not bad. Yes he would come into our room sometime in the night, but quietly and we do not discourage it. Lately however he stopped coming to our room quietly and is crying loud in his bed most of the time also wet with pee. When asking what is wrong that moment or during day... More
