Okay, two different issues here.
My DD is an easy, beautiful, placid natured child. HOWEVER - the last 2 weeks she has woken up at 4am screaming and won't go back to sleep and hence wakes her brother up. This is a child that self settles, has no dummy to sleep, is ususally a dream to deal with. She was a fantastic sleeper until now, i'm going out of my mind!
My DS is a very, very attention seeking child. Needs to be sitting on my lap or climbing my legs or pulling at my skirt or yelling out to make sure I know he's there. Total opposite - fabulous sleeper though, no complaints in this department. What I will mention is he has become so very, very demanding and if I chase him when he's going somewhere he shouldn't he kicks and screams and throws a massive tantrum (at 13 months.... really?? ) YES really. He has also decided he won't be put in a highchar, he won't sit in a stroller and he won't go back to self settling. Uhhhhh i'm the boss though right? Someone shed some light on this.
We are considering trying for number 3 however the last 2 weeks i'm majorly reconsidering!
