My beautiful DD is 18 months now, and has really started to hit the terrible 2's with sleeptime.
Aside from yesterday, we had NO day sleeps all week. Yesterday she had 5 hours during the day (after needles the day before). She's also stretched out her bedtime until 8-10pm. She's in a toddler bed now and just gets out and screams and cries. And when you put her back down it's worse!
She hasn't been eating since her needles, but this morning I persisted and kept putting her back in and, hey presto, she fell asleep!
I'm now struggling again after a very tired and cranky baby asked for her milk, and showed me she was tired, but has spent the last 20 mins to half hour getting up, banging on the door and screaming blue murder...
I just wanted written proof that I did it this morning really, and some moral support that this WILL end! On the up-side I've had my Anti-Depressants increased, so I'm not losing it anymore, and have a lot more patience to deal with it!!
Also did anyone else's toddler go through a phase where they just wouldn't eat? DF and I both don't want to give-in to letting her eat whatever she wants (cheese sticks, or mini cheese rice wheels)... Do you just keep offering healthy foods (fruit, sanwiches, meat & veg etc) and if they don't eat it, take it away? She has LOTS of milk (goes through about 2L in 2 or 3 days) and drinks lots of water too...
