    Default 15 months old can't sleep....

    Hi, my DS used to be a better sleeper. Was able to sleep abt 1.5 hours for his morning nap and abt 1 hour in his afternoon nap and only wake once at night. About 10 days ago, everything went down the toilet. He wakes up every 30 mins from his morning nap and needs to be resettled if he's tired to sleep another 30 mins. If he's not, then the nap is over. Same for his afternoon nap. At night, he sleeps at 8pm, amd wakes every 2-3 hours needing to be resettled.
    I'm at my wits end. Is this a development milestone he's reaching(he's not walking yet) or is this a sign that he's ready to drop a day sleep. Please help...!

    I think you need to slowly stretch him out to a midday sleep. Push back his morning sleep by 15-30min every day till 11.30/12 ish.

    Agree. This age they start to transition to one nap, sounds like this is what is happening. It took about 6 weeks for her to sleep longer than an hour, it's a bumpy phase as they learn to stretch out till midday and consolidate into one big nap. If she was extra grizzly/tired I would take her for a walk/car ride in the afternoon for a quick cartnap. And earlier bedtime.
    Good luck xxx

    What about a sleep regression? Could this be it as well? Yesterday, he refused to go down for his morning nap so he went down ard 1 something for his afternoon nap but only slept for 1.5 hours. Last night he woke every 2 hours. Could this be a sign as he's not ready to drop one day sleep?

    Sounds more like he is overtired. Not saying its not a sleep regression but it's odd timing for that.

    I'm going to do something unheard of and agree with Rose. My first thought was that at 15 months bub is probably ready for 1 day nap. Putting bub down too early means shorter naps (as bub is not tired enough) which leads to being over tired in the arvo.

    Good luck OP.

    I agree that it's probably time for only 1 sleep during the day.

    Hi op, I've just been through this exact same thing with my DS 15 months!
    I pushed his nap back to 11am (kept him super busy in the morning with playgroup/swimming/the beach etc) and by the time we got home he was so tired & would sleep through till 1pm. By the time we've had lunch and playtime, dinner, bath and storytime he's usually asleep by 7pm with only one wake up at 4am.
    Good luck, it's hard but so worth it 😀
