    magic wand please....

    my probelm is that i seem to be able to get him sorted out, then something happens. i was in hospital again for a couple of days last week. this really throws him off as he has no idea where i've disappeared to. add to that the fact that he's had a cold for the last few days, it's been awful... only way anyone could get sleep last night was for him to sleep with me and poor hubby had to sleep on the sofa(we have a few new dogs, so he had to keep his eye on them)...my son slept from 10:45pm-6:10am...then a 45 minute nap this morning. THAT'S IT!

    usually he sleeps MUCH better than that, but he HATES waking up when no one is around. i think that it scares him, especially with mummy being in the hospital 4 times over the past 7 weeks!

    anyway, i'm hoping that it will eventually pass...hopefully BEFORE the next one arrives!

    no more luck for me. she was up this morning at 5am. so by 12.30pm she was so tired she dozed off in the car for 1 1/2hr. she's now done with her bedtime routine but playing on the floor =(

    sounds like your son is as sensitive as my daughter. seems like there isn't much we can do and hope that if the next one comes around they'll eventually learn that somebody else is as important as them..... everyone said it's being the only child & centre of attention..... somehow i'm starting to buy that theory.....

    well.... last night, mine slept from 7;45pm-5:45am!!! i was quite happy with that...only problem was, it was with me... he's been sick and i'm in too much pain to be getting up and down with him all night.

    i guess i should be thankful for such a nice long sleep, especially since i fell asleep by 8:15 last night myself!

    All I can offer is an understanding of what you are going through. My daughter is now 22 months old and has only slept through the night maybe 3 times EVER. Most nights she wakes up 2-10 times a night. She will call for us and we have to go and sit with her until she falls back to sleep, this can take anywhere from 15min to 2hours. We also sit with her at bedtime until she is asleep and this can take from 20min-1hour. Then the same for her morning nap which is from 40min- 1.5hours. She wakes up between 6 and 7am, my husband is away alot and I have no helper so most of the time it is just me and I am EXHAUSTED.

    She will even wake up if she is sleeping with me or if I sleep in her room. We have tried everything and even seen a sleep specialist, NOTHING has helped. Hopefully we will all get some rest soon

    Good luck ladies

    yes, i know. now she's dropped her nap. if she doesn't nap during the day, she drops right asleep at 7.30pm & wakes up between 5am-7.30am. waking up 2-3 times a night. 3 times a week, she'd be so exhausted by 4-5pm she'd fall asleep in the car. then she'd sleep at 11 pm. like yesterday, we were going from from her playgroup & she fell asleep in the car at 4.30pm, she woke up again at 7pm. still very tired & cried & fussed for an hr. then wouldn't sleep until midnight. last friday, she napped at 4pm for 30mins, & slept at 11pm (which i think is too late for a toddler). so i just cannot let her nap at all during the day.
