DS has just started daycare (two days a week, Mon-Tues) and has been settling in well. His first day he was upset and didn't eat, but did nap for an hour (his usual) and since then has been getting better with food also.
Its been three weeks now, however since week one, his night time sleep is now terrible
His typical sleep would include 7pm bedtime, 20 mins chatting to himself and then asleep until 6:45am. Now however, he screams (almost like night terrors) until we go in and tell him "everything's OK, its time for sleep". He then will lie down quietly and nod off after 5-10 mins, then we will leave him.
That would be OK, but it seems every sleep cycle he does this, waking almost every hour through to 2am, then we may get through to 6 when he wakes for the day and we cannot get him back to sleep again.
We are expecting DS number two in six weeks and the exhaustion is driving DP and I up the wall.
I'm sure this is only a phase, and no doubt linked in some way to separation anxiety due to the new daycare routine.
Just a rant, but if anyone can relate or share feedback it is of course welcome.
