    I assume he wakes after a half hour because he's fallen asleep to the patting and when he goes through his sleep cycle into a lighter sleep and the patting is no longer there then he wakes up needing it again. The patting obviously isn't working.

    So are you the parent, the babysitter or childcare worker or something else to this toddler @sylvia1111? Just seems like a follow on from your threads the other day asking about sleep school, about the babysitter who was asked to pat a child to sleep and the child who wouldn't sleep at daycare? As I said in one of those threads it would be really nice to hear more about your situation and relationship to the children that you are posting about as it would help members give advice which is tailored to your situation and relationship with the child!

    The word "toddler" is very broad. how old exactly is the child in question ?

    These "toddler wakes constantly" and "needs patting to sleep" posts make me anxious. I worry about the "toddler" in question and whether they are in capable hands, and whether the parents know how much the carer is struggling

    Seriously OP, I mean this in the nicest possible way, but your threads are always so vague, no one ever knows who you're talking about. In every single thread people ask you for further information and to clarify your role in the threads, but you never reply, this says to me you aren't genuine.

    Can you please please please give us some background to you. Are you a mum? If so is this your toddler?

    Are you a child care worker?

    Are you asking for a friend who is concerned about her/his child.

    Are you studying early child development and these are your assessment questions?

    In my mind unless you start replying to questions like these, I'm not sure how you can expect us to take you seriously and respond with compassion and care for you.

    I doubt OP will clarify, as she never does. But from what I can piece together, she is a nanny to 2 kids. One being about 18 months old, the other 3 years or so. Which I find worrisome considering how much she is struggling with the kids.

    .... Or she could be the parent, it can be hard to tell as she asks some questions like she is the parent. I'm also not meaning to be horrible, but the refusal to add any clarification or follow up posting at all makes it really hard to know what to say.

    Why do people keep replying? OP I'd love to offer some advice but given you're not being open, I can't help but think my advice won't even be listened to, so aid be wasting my time.
