Ladies advice please,
Our 1year old sleeps from 6pm -9pm,9.15pm-2 ish, 2.15am - 5am,
so he's getting a good 11 hours variably, but during the day he just won'tsleep past his first 40-5 mins ,b e it in the car/pram/cot.
We practiced CC for a couple of months from which we all got sleep during the ight as we did't boob him to sleep ,now only boob on waking and during the night.
But days are still the same.
OUr sleep'nurse'(??) has told us to makehim cry it out from when he wakes til he falls asleep again, then when that didn't work after a week, I tried going in to himand patting/rocking him over to 2ndcycle, didn't work. Then when i told her this, she said to cry out again !! which now wejust won't do besides he gets too distressed too quickly and it a more clever than hewas when we started. And i simply can't listen to him crying that way anymore!!
So anything else tried amd tested to allow him to sleepmore ???
He isn't sleeping in the morning every day,
Hubby thinks to wean off boob - but really don't want to go down that route yet.
He has hiscloth book and musical seahorse - he activites himself in the cot, but he's never really attachedhimself to a particular toy/comforter so have just given him the opportunity to choose something he's been playing alot recently - a teddy - andgiven it to him just now.
I put him down awake -
He always self occupies for 15mins or so before getting self to sleep- just need/want him to sleep more at a time - especially if he'sdropping a day sleep.
Or as i've come to understand - maybe this is just him and the way its to be. But by 3-4pm he's very clingy, falls over lots,pushes everything away, won't spendmore than a couple of mins self-occupied. so he can't be ready !!!
any suggestion please...
it's a beautiful day today, sun and showers = lots of rainbows !!!
