    Default 6 mth sleep regression?

Some deep breathing from me also encouraged (and still does) to calm down and get ready for sleep.
    I believe what I actually thought was over tiredness was me putting her to bed too early, now I stretch her out and she has been (fingers crossed) going down a lot easier, it was like you said, suddenly she could stay up an extra half hr, so 2.5 hr up in the morning and usually nearly 3 in the arvo so 2 sleeps a day with a big usually 2.5 hr in the morning and 45 in the arvo, but she's been down to 2 for about a month now.

    We never let her anywhere near TV at night cause yes it lights her little eyes up like a xmas tree. But i will stop any day time watching.
