Are any of you dealing with sleep regressions? How are you handling it? Mid January my daughter was struggling with sleep. She would have frequent night terrors and wake up constantly. She threw tantrums a lot and would claw at herself all the time. We figured out she was going stir crazy and needed to get out more. We made changes to our schedules and began going to the library, playground, an... More
My 5 and half month old not only have been waking up every two hours for the last month but also started to scream and fights to go to sleep when we start our bedtime routine that I dread putting to sleep every night. He is exclusively breastfed however I have been pumping and giving a bottle for his last feed to avoid nursing him to sleep and make sure he goes down with a full tummy. I have b... More
My little guy will not sleep in his room... I have to lay with him in my room then I transfer him to bed.. this is where it gets tricky he awakens and heads to my room and I take him back to his bed this occurs every hour until I give in and lay him in bed with me so I can get some sleep... he says he is scared which I understand and try talk to him but nothing has worked.
Hi there everyone. Like most of the families here we are in quarantine and the little one’s are having a different routine now. My 3 1/2 yr old boy sleeps late and wakes up late. He always throws a tantum during naps and night time. He hits and kicks and bites and gets all high at night. I am looking for some suggestions on night calming items to help him calm down and sleep better at night.
I'm 37 weeks pregnant and have a 2.5 year old that just learned how to open the door to his room and CONTINOUSLY leaves his room for hours on end at night leading to over tiredness from lack of sleep during the day and night and leading to two EXTREMELY exhausted parents -- especially right now with this virus outbreak and being home all day. We have tried consistently walking him back to h... More
I’m looking for a bassinet that I could also use to have by my bedside but don’t know how safe they are when it comes to overnight sleep. During the day I’d be up so baby could sleep there and I’d be aware but is it built to handle all night sleep?
My 2 year old still wakes up at least every 1-2 hours every night. It’s been this way since the day he was born. I’m exhausted and have no time to recharge- ever. I refuse to do cry it out because of the proven long-term psychological harm it causes. I’m a single mom but am able to stay home with him (very thankful I have the resources right now to do this) but this means I never get a break- d... More
We put our 2.5 y/o into a toddler bed 3 weeks ago. At the same time we were attempting to re-train him to fall asleep by himself at night. Now he gets up 5x a night and cannot get him to stay in his bed! To give you a little background, my LO started crying when we left the room at bedtime around 1.5 y/o and we ended up sitting in the room until he fell asleep every night since. He slept thro... More
So my baby is 4 months old,and EBF. I have read books,watched videos...about sleep training.But I'm wondering if it's really feasable and possible to sleep train breastfed babies. I made the mistake not to sleep train my daughter who is 4 now and just she started sleeping through night in her own room, it was a long and tiring journey. I'm trying to avoid going through that again. P... More
We took the front off of our three-year-old's crib a couple months ago and since then she often decides to sleep on her floor or the small loveseat in her room. Last night she wanted to sleep on the floor just outside of her room. There's plush carpet and we make sure she has blankets and a sweater, so I think the floor is pretty comfortable for her. Just wondering if any other kids do ... More
Does anyone have suggestions for getting the morning nap in for my 9 month old? I am currently juggling a 2 year old, a 9 month old (who hates all sleep) and have to take the kids to childcare for work for a few hours each day. Feeling like if I could provide some consistency with naps that we might have a better sleeper. What have you done?
Our almost 6 week old baby has just started sleeping large chunks (roughly 5-7 hrs from start of final evening feed to “middle-of-the-night feed). We only have enough room to have our 21 month old and baby share. Is this a good enough stretch or should we wait a bit longer? Baby currently sleeps in a pack n play in our room, but we have a mini crib already set up with the toddler bed (it’s j... More
Our only son wakes up every night at around 1-2am and again 5a. He wants to sleep with us and in our bed. I think he doesn’t understand yet that parents sleep together and kids by themselves. I always tell him when putting him to bed that mom and dad sleep in their bed. I reassure him that we’re there in our bed. Thank you for your suggestions.
I always had a bedtime routine from the time my daughter was 7 months old and up until she was 2 years old. The routine stopped because she refused to be read or sung to like we usually had done. The previous nighttime routine was this: Dinner (6pm), bath (7pm), brush teeth/hair (7:30pm), read a book and sing (7:35 - 8pm), bedtime/sleep (8pm). After she turned 2, she decided she didn't wan...

My two year old just figured out how to open doors and now won't stay in her room at night/for naps.
My toddler has always been an excellent (though light) sleeper. No problem self-soothing, etc... However she recently learned how to open doors and has been coming out of her room multiple times when she is supposed to be sleeping. We have an ok-to-wake clock and she does seem to understand the concept but either stays awake staring at it waiting for it to change or totally disregards it. We al... More
