    Default Sleep School - how long for improvement?

    The last two nights have been quite good! He is still waking in the night a couple of times but is resettling fairly easily. On Thursday night I didn't even need to go in when he woke, he resettled himself! We've managed to avoid giving him a bottle overnight which is a huge improvement from the 2-3 he was having before. He's so much happier in the morning and seems much more rested. It's not perfect yet but definitely on the right track.

    We have just done some sleep training and it's taken two weeks to get about 11.5 hours over night. We worked with a doctor who specialises in sleep issues and whilst it was challenging the developmental changes since he started sleeping more have been astounding. My boy was 15 months though (not sure how old you LO is, and he did say it is harder and it takes longer to train a toddler).

    DS is 14 months so pretty close to your son. I'm hoping to see some developmental improvement as this has been an issue with him.

    Nights are so much better but day sleeps have suffered a bit. He's only sleeping for an hour once a day, maybe twice, but he used to sleep for 2-3 hrs so hoping that gets back on track!

    From what I remember the day naps did take longer to sort out and he used to take 2-3 1 hr naps only. It was only when he changed to one nap that he started sleeping longer for 2 hours. But he would still go down ok mostly unless he was really wired up.

    I am in the exact same situation during the day with my boy. He used to be 2-3 hours in two naps during the day but is now having two 45 min naps. Though we are getting 11.5 hours at night. We are still training though. The doc I saw advised that once his night sleep settles the day sleep will follow. I'm hoping he will be back to napping properly soon. Have you tried an earlier bedtime? I was hesitant to try it but it actually made ds sleep longer at night.. Go figure

    I'm glad to hear some of you are getting somewhere with your sleep training. My DS is currently 18 months and we did sleep school at 15/16 weeks. Whilst hands on worked for a while, once he turned 5/6 months it seemed to annoy him. I have always stuck the routine given by the school but my boy is stubborn and determined. He won't allow me to leave the room and most nights it takes me minimum half hour of his antics (and my utter frustration) to get him to sleep. Tonight was an hour. 😡

    He stopped feeding through the night at 6 months although he was still waking several times a night until recently. In the last few weeks he's begun to sleep though reasonably often. Most nights he only needs a cuddle to get back to sleep if he does wake but approx 1 or 2 nights a week he ends up in our bed.

    Cue, I hope your LO is far less stubborn then mine and it all kicks in for you really soon. By the looks of it you have significant improvement. I hope the trend continues in that direction!

    Bit of a setback, DS was up most of last night with a fever. Sick again. His constant illness makes this so much harder!
