We're home from our big adventures and our household is having a tough time returning to normal. By 'our household', I mean one LITTLE person specifically. Here is a quick update.
She goes to bed right away at 6:30 and sleeps straight until 1:30 or so. Yes. 1:30. Then she's up for good... but you know she's exhausted. The only sleep she gets after that point is when we give in and put her in bed with us (Not a good habit for her to develop after being so independent for so long)... She also flat out refuses naps unless she's in bed with me napping.
However, I'm not sure it's due to the time change at this point.
Yesterday I found her 2 bottom teeth on the center are trying to break through. HOORAY! We won't have a toothless mongrel forever! Advice needed: How long does this take and is this the culprit of her poor sleep habits lately?
Also noteworthy, she has learned to pull herself up on EVERYTHING, and every 2 minutes after her 1:30 am wakeup call, she's standing at the end of her crib crying for us. Advice needed: How long does this take for them to get over and is this the culprit of her poor sleep habits lately?
Someone please save us.
I don't sleep when she's sleeping on me and I can't let the kid cry for hours on end.
Crying it out doesn't work for her. It sends her into a full blown panic that takes forever to calm down from.
