    Default Ideas?

    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 ****** of conciousness, I'm tired and my four year old won't stop talking to me

    Could she be ready to drop the second sleep during the day? I know my ds dropped his around this age and i found bedtime a bit easier.
    He also got some teeth at this age as well which kept him up a little at night

    No help here, but just wanted you to know you're not alone in the waking for long periods thing. But my DS has been doing it for months and I don't know why. I've tried just about everything.

    That behaviour seems like teething to me. Try panadol.

    Thanks purple poppy, I'm working on that because I had the same thought. She keeps falling asleep in the car late though lol and that causes bedtime issues.

    Have tried panadol, no effect. Will try working on dropping to one sleep, but it's not the going to sleep that's the issue. It still could be causing issues, having Too much sleep in the day, I'll focus on that

    About this age my boys started needed some extra food in the middle of the night to tide them over till morning. Didn't want milk, it had to be food.
