To: Pickle18   You must be so tired too - wow - sleep deprivation is so hard! Let me know how is goes for you guys having a calmer evening and what is mean to you little ones sleep.
Okay ladies....here's the update on night 2 of earlier bedtime.   Night 1 50 minutes to settle into sleep in rocker with me - asleep at 7:40pm. Woke at 4am (yikes) and I had to hold him again in rocker till 5:30am when he passed out and I was able to bring him to my bed (wouldn't go in crib) He then slept from 5:30am-6:15am.....all in all he got 9.25 hours of night sleep and 1.75 hours during the day = 11 hours in total Total hours are good but still spent...
To: Newmommalizzy   Yes - he IS the early bird type;) That's okay...I would be a lot happier with a 6am wake up then 4:30am-5am though....(especially with hours of wakefulness through the night)....sigh! I took your advise tonight. Here's what we did: Instead of going to the park after dinner with daddy and having lights out around 7:15-7:30pm, we had a 5:30pm dinner and quiet play with daddy till 6:10pm, then up to brush teeth, take a bath, get jammies on and...
He rans back and forth between jumping into crib, lying down to jumping back up again and asking to be picked up and rocked. The back and forth process takes 1.5-2 hours. We do have a park right accross the street and spend a couple of hours there everyday....but the final 30 min-1 hour at the end of getting him to sleep, is yes, rocking for that long.... He had really bad reflux till 16 months of age and bouncing and rocking are what comforted him....maybe it's all...
Yes - we had also aways suspected this. Jaden's been Dairy and Wheat Free for most of his 2.5 years. We recently introduced wheat again and things have stayed the same (no worse), but I still do think that Dairy may be an issue, so we are staying away from that although blood work and energy tests show that he's clear of allergens...I also know that sometimes it's not really accurate until kids are 3+years old as their immune systems are still developing.
My 2.5 year old  son has been diagnosed with Insomnia.   He only gets a total of 8-10 hours sleep within 24 hours, is not yet sleeping through the night regularly & has a really, REALLY hard time settling...we are talking 1.5-2 hours of rocking to get him to sleep. (for naps and nighttime)   I am truly exhausted and wondering if there are any other mom's out there that have been or that are going through this? I'm not in the camp of letting him cry it out to...
To: Oliver's Mom   I've often thought about starting our routine at 6:30pm right after dinner and some quiet play when daddy's home. How long does it take for you angel to fall asleep once the lights are off? Are you rocking or does he fall asleep on him own in his bed? My son's been diagnosed with insomnia and cannot rest/calm himself....the bath/potty/brushing teeth....everything makes hime more and more hyper...can you message me if this sounds familiar and you...
