  1. Single Parenting
    We have been in our own place for over a year, and he was so excited to have his own room but when it came time to sleep he was too scared. i figured it would take sometime to get used too (he was a co sleeper) but not this long! i let him sleep in the livingroom a lot of the time but usually...
  2. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Hello,<br> I don't know if I need advice or encouragement or what, but I'm losing it here. My son is almost 3. He has never been easy to get to sleep. When he was a baby, the acrobatics it took (walking swaying dancing swirling etc.) were so strenuous that my husband and I had to trade off...
  3. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>I am a very gentle mommy and do not believe it CIO at all, just want to start by saying that.</p> <p>I have a 13 month old son, who has been very difficult to get to bed at night (latley). He gets overtired it seems. This is what has been happening...I watch for his tired cues and then I...
  4. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>I have a beautiful almost 15 month old daughter who isn't tired until 9:30 pm on average.  She had a consistent bedtime before 8 months old but since that regression she has been all over the place.  She went to bed at 10:30 pm last night.  She isn't acting overtired (cranky, crying at the...
  5. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>Our bedtime routine consists of bath, snack, brush teeth, books, lights out & mommy or daddy lays with our 2.5 yo DD in the dark until she falls asleep. We usually start the routine about an hour before lights out. But it is driving me crazy that one of us has to lay in the dark with DD for...
  6. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Our son is 4 1/2 and co slept until he was 2 when we moved him to his own bed. He's consistently woken us up nearly every night since then. Co-sleeping isn't working for our family anymore, and I usually get the brunt of the night time wakings. I don't mind beig the one that gets up with him...
  7. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>My son is 3. He has never been a good sleeper. I will be honest with you here. We have tried to get him into a bedtime routine since he was a baby, but he has never gotten the sleeping aspect of the routine. Whether we put him to bed at 6 or 7 or 8 or 9, he does not fall asleep until about...
  8. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>   We are so stuck on this and really don't know what to do. I am pregnant with our second who is due at the beginning of September, and my 4 year old is still in the cot bed sidecarred with our bed. We've been telling her that she needs to start sleeping in her own room for months now, but...
  9. Gentle Discipline
    <p>We've enjoyed co-sleeping on and off--we put our daughter in her crib at around 8 months b/c we couldn't leave her alone in our bed safely. Most nights, she'd end up with us, but sometimes she slept through the night. Up until a few months ago, we could put her down for a nap or put her down...
  10. The Childhood Years
    I am feeling so frustrated right now. My 3.5 yr old DD has started pulling the good ole' delay tactics at bedtime. It used to be just bath, stories, kisses and lights out. Done and out in 30 min max.<br><br> It isn't always that simple, a request for water or an occasional whimper about not...
  11. Life with a Toddler
    <p>For the past 4 months, my 2.5 year old no longer cooperates at bedtime. He usually ends up falling asleep around 10:30, the last few days it's been 11. Often there are huge struggles, tears and fights. I often lose my own patience after a couple hours. I am working on that I know it only...
