Messing with your child’s sleep routine is right up there with the list of activities we dread most. Some parents may even prefer to have a tooth pulled than interfere …
Tips from parents: How old was your little one when you transitioned them from a cot to a bed? What worked for you? What’s your best tip for making it as hassle free as possible?
Q&A: A suggestion from one mum for Monsterphobia: fill a spray bottle with water & a few drops of lavender oil & spray it around when she gets scared of the monsters:) What are your suggestions?
Q&A: Hi everyone, I need some ideas to help my 2 1/2 year old daughter sleep longer at night. She wakes 4-5 times a night. I would like ‘gentle’ tips that don’t involve leaving her to cry.
Q&A: I’m so confused as to what to do with my 19moDD. She used to be such a great sleeper and self settled. DH had to I away for work for 3 weeks and she stopped SS and I just sat with her until she went to sleep. Then her and I went on a 2 week holiday where we slept in the same room in separate beds. Now we are all back together she is taking up to an hour and a half to go down and she is waking up at night. Is it too hard to go back to the SOS routine at this age? It’s what we used originally. Any parents try SOS at this age?
Q&A: After advice from a sleep consultant, we are preparing to try cry it out with our nearly 3 year old. I am exhausted from getting up to her 4/5 times a night. She doesn’t need anything she just calls out for me to go into her which I’ve been doing but have ruin out of steam. Looking for mums who have used this method with success. How did you manage the process?
Q&A: My 2yo has got in the habit of not going off to sleep (at night only) unless myself or my partner are in his room, once hes asleep he’ll sleep all night but he just wont go off on his own. I don’t want to do controlled crying or anything similar…any ideas would be appreciated.
