    Default 21 month old sleeping issues. Please freaking help.

    Okay someone tell me what happened.. Please?!

    DD was sleeping 12 solid hours over night (1 occasional wakening) and 4 hours during the day.

    In the last 2 weeks, she's been sleeping 7pm to FIVE FREAKING AM, 40mins - 1.5 hours during the day.

    What? Why? Please share.

    She been yelling out request from her cot, ranging from "drink, toy, book, cold, hot, stuck, sore, tired, all done now, mummy help, daddy play etc etc" all hours of the blooming night.

    I dont think I've delt with so much crying, or been up to 'settle' as often, since she was 2 months old.

    Am I missing a milestone?

    Maybe cut down on the day nap? She could be over sleeping perhaps? Could she have also had a growth spurt? No idea what ages they are at usually sorry. She could of just decided to change her sleeping habits too.

    Sorry, prolly not much help but just throwing out some ideas for you.

    Could she be cold? My son often wakes around then because he always kicks off his blankets.

    I would put her to bed later like 7.30-8pm and shorten the day nap to 1/2 hour.
    Things that could be bothering her...
    -Cutting her molars
    -Constipated
    -Blocked sinuses, try a steamer in her room.
    -Food related, My DS reacts BAD to juice or fruit sticks/bars also MSG in things like the supposed healthy 'rice wheels' etc. Check out 'Sue Dengate/food intolerance. for more info on that.
    - Hungry
    - UTI
    - Headache
    - Splinter ?
    - Bad dreams
    - Seperation anxiety

    You could try and wear her out before bed time, a long afternoon walk, races in the backyard, dancing, swimming, My DS goes to bed easier after lots of physical activity

    Mark &sandy - sorry you are experiencing the PAIN also

    Mistz- shes only sleeping 10 hours over night and 45mins - 1.5 hours during the day. Surely that not enough for a 21 month old ??

    I think ive eliminated hot/cold mainly because she yells out one or the other during the night but still wakes up crying wanting random things (like a book, at 2am, in a dark room, and will yell until I get up)

    our 18mth old is doing this every 3rd or so night.

    I am really hoping its a phase. To get over it I take her outdoors every afternoon for a run around 1-2 hrs on non day care days.

    Give me a newborn any day.
