Miss Ruby is almost 14 months and is currently going through a shocking sleep stage. I'm wondering if anyone might have some ideas for me?
She is currently at the stage of having one or two sleeps a day, she has a comforter and a dummy, which she can replace herself. Her day sleeps are usually around 1-1.5 hours.
I sometimes feed her before bed, but she will be still awake and mostly rolls over and goes to sleep on her own. When she isn't fed before bed, she might cry a little, have a play and then lay down for sleep. She can definitely self-settle.
She's currently waking 1-2 times a night and I feed then pop her back in bed. I have no problem with that, except that she's started not going back to sleep. Last night she woke at 11 and I fed her and she went back to bed and started crying. I went to the toilet and she was still crying, not distressed. After an attempt to feed again - not interested, some crying to see fi she would settle, attempted rocking and a dose of nurofen, I ended up putting her into bed with us.
She has a good routine before bed and is in bed/asleep by 7:30pm. She sleeps until 7ish. It's just this waking and not settling for up to 1.5 hours at night!
She has three meals and snacks during the day, with plenty of good fats, proteins and carbs.
She does suffer from eczema, though so I do wonder if maybe she's itchy and that's keeping her awake?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated - feel free to ask if I haven't covered everything lol. And excuse my stream of conciousness, I'm tired and my four year old won't stop talking to me
