Save our Sleep in Toddlers
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?

How did you manage the process?
