    I did cc for my eldest almost 12 years ago. It worked for her.
    My other three it didn't work. I have a differnt mind-set now.
    My eldest had a strict routine, in bed by 7:30. Was fed on my time...
    Fast foward to now and my 2 year old goes falls asleep at 11, it's his schedule. He wakes around 9 or 10. We snuggle up together when he's falling asleep.
    I'm not apposed to cc but if after a few nights it isn't working and the baby is more stressed (older babies I mean, not newborns) I think it's time to stop.
    My eldest (the one I used cc on) is a happy, healthy kid, but then so are my others.
    I often have people say "your kids should be in bed earlier, especially the two-year-old" why? They're getting 10ish hours over night..
    Do what works for you, every child is different, every family is different.

    10ish hours is no where near enough for a toddler. Two year olds need 12 hours of sleep. At least.

    Dd definitely does not get that when you take into account all her wakings. 10:30pm now and woken 6 times now.

    You cannot say that. Not so emphatically. My eldest has never slept 12 hours in one night IN HER ENTIRE LIFE. And now as a near 11 year old she gets around 9 hours sleep a night and functions perfectly.

    Some people need less sleep than others.

    It depends on the kid. We've done everything we can think of to get our 3 year old to sleep more than 10 hours but sometimes we just can't, he just won't do it. He was the same at 2. He is really hyper but our paed said with some kids, you just can't get them to sleep anymore. So can depend on the kid. Even if they need it you can't get them to do it.

    Yes I can. Just because your 2 year old didn't sleep 12 hours at night, doesn't mean they didn't need it. Or they might sleep 9 hours at night and 3 during the day. Most 2 year olds still nap. My son stopped napping at 26 months and his night time sleep went down the chute at that age as well. But he still needed 12 hours altogether and wasn't getting it and his behaviour was awful for ages because of it.

    I think it's 12hrs over the whole 24hrs, so night sleep plus day nap. Neither of mine have ever slept solidly for longer than 10 or 11hrs overnight, but topped it up with a day nap.

    I said they need that amount of sleep. Not that they get it but they need it. Plus I didn't mention 12 hours at night. I just said 12 hours.
