    Default 18 month sleep regression

    I didn't even know about this still I started googling this morning.

    I'm pretty lucky (so far) that DS is still sleeping through, but only if I dreamfeed at 10:30-11:00pm.

    My problem is that he just won't self settle. We have had a routine for a few months now. Milk, teeth, books then we leave the hallway light on and leave and he reads for a bit and goes to sleep. Now, however I've had to resort to feeding to sleep every night.

    I'm not sure what to do. Do I keep feeding to sleep? Persist with the routine? We won't CIO, but I can sit in the room and wait him out - this can take 2 hours though.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Sorry can't really help but just wanted to say I hope it passes soon. My thought is it's brilliant you've had him self-settling and sleeping through up till now, and if he knows how to self-settle, he will do so again. Just ride it out for a few weeks and then reassess.

    Thanks Majestic. I don't mind feeding him to sleep, except it means that he won't sleep unless I'm home, and I work a couple of days a week at the moment.

    Fingers crossed that "this too shall pass", and soon

    we fed to sleep till 19/20mths when I weaned completely (cos im pregnant and dry) and now cuddle to sleep. DH wants to be able to put her in bed and walk out but I'm reluctant as DD is going to lose out on so many cuddles soon and I dont want her to not have her bedtime one as well.
