So I have a two year old (3 in October) that suddenly hates his bed room. He has always liked sleeping next to someone since he was born but he will normally sleeps in his own room 5 or 6 times a weeks. However the last week he comes and sleeps with me after just being in his room for a few hours. I figured it because he's getting new teeth. Well I told him he had to sleep in his room becau... More
Hi, I cloth diaper my 13 month old. Overnights are becoming a problem. We are starting to see a trend where she wakes up with a diaper leak. Stripping her crib, bath & change of clothes all first thing in the morning is becoming old. Also, it must be uncomfortable for her. She doesn’t cry just sits in all the wetness. She sleeps about 10-12 hours overnight now. Goes to sleep with 1 - 8... More
My one year old is a little furnace and gets hot easily. Though it doesn't seem to bother him, his hair will be wet with sweat within seconds of being laid down to sleep. Even if he was wearing only his diapers, the side of him that he is lying on will be overheating and that side of his head will have sweaty hair. I've tried fans but he seems bothered by the air flow and moves away fr... More
Wow for the last 2 weeks my son started waking up an entire hour earlier. Every morning. Last night we put him to bed an hour later and he still woke up today an hour earlier! He stays in his room but he cries or is super noisy waking us all up. For 9mos he’s been consistently waking up around 7:15. Now it’s 6:15 regardless of when bedtime is. He’s almost 4. He doesn’t nap/won’t nap. He ha... More
My daughter is 17 months and has been sleeping through the night since she was 4 months. This past month she has been waking up every night at random times and sometimes does not go back to sleep for an hour. Sometimes she cries and sometimes she just talks to herself. It can’t be teeth because I don’t see any coming in, and we’ve given Tylenol and she still wakes up. Anybody have experience wi... More
My 16mo old is still not sleeping through the night.... some nights is worse than others. Some nights I see him with his eyes closed and his arms and legs just keep kicking and moving around. He sleeps with my husband and I.... as that is the only way I can get him and me to go back to sleep quickly. Is this an issue?? Thank you for your responses and time :)
I really believe we need to sleep train our 14mo, maybe the Ferber method. My husband is completely against letting her cry for more than 20mins. I informed him that I am going to start today and that maybe it would be a good idea if he sleeps out at his parents house for the next 3 nights (since he has to be up at 2am for work). His reply is great I’m getting kicked out of my own house. I told... More
Hi, My hubby passed away back on December 30 th of last year. Both our kids have slept in their room, since my hubby passed they have wanted to sleep in my room. My son is ok now sleeping in his room. My daughter has not wanted to sleep in her room. I have tried for two nights, to let her fall asleep and then transferring her to her room. One night she did alright only woke up once and it was ... More
Ive read and I've been told at his age should be sleeping earlier for bedtime and that naps are shorter now. His naps did change. It use to be 3 hrs. Now its half hour, 1 hour or hour and half. It's been pretty stressful as i would like to take my naps too when he's napping. As for bedtime i have been putting him sleep latest midnight but i went down to 11pm. Because of the late hou... More
My baby is eight months old and she likes to sleep facedown and I’m worried that she’s going to smother her self .I have bought one baby breathing monitor but it was cheap and the alarm just kept going off on it. I need to find something that works.
My 21 month old toddler won’t sleep early, she goes to sleep around 2-3 am!! She wakes up around 12 pm. I’ve tried the whole waking her up early and keeping her up, and she will go to sleep around to 10 but still manages to wake up and go back to sleep around 3 am 😭 I try to get her really tired or give her bath at night but nothing works she has too much energy and I’m just so exhausted! Any t... More
I usually have my son in bed at 8-9pm but he fights it , he wants to be up moving any suggestions? (We go to the park everyday before nap time and walk after naps and it doesn’t seem to wore him out)
My 11 week old won’t sleep more than 50 minutes unless she is lying next to me. I’ve tried everything, different swaddles, putting down awake, putting down drowsy, putting down asleep, rocking, feeding to sleep, giving a bottle, a pacifier, swaddling, not swaddling, spacing out feedings. using a shirt with my smell, bassinet, a warm heating pad- everything. She will not sleep in the crib at nig... More
My son is in pre-k and it’s so hard to wake him up even when he goes to sleep relatively early.
My 2-year old son just started daycare after being home with a nanny. He's refusing to nap there (they do one afternoon nap that aligns with his naptime at home). He's a good napper at home and sleeps a solid 11 hours each night. The napping situation is different of course at school - a cot instead of a crib. Any tips for how to help him adjust to his new napping situation? The prescho... More
