Chase is sleeping like crap!! He has always been a terrible sleeper and we have always chalked it up to his constant illnesses but for the past 2 weeks he is struggling to sleep. He goes to daycare every day and has a very set schedule there. He plays hard and naps from 12-1:45 everyday. He usually goes to bed at 8. He will sleep for exact;y 3 hours and then start tossing and turning and crying in his sleep from 11-12:30. Then he ends up wide awake from 12:30-2. At that point he will slowly start to fall back asleep until 4:30. He wakes at 4:30 every day no matter how early or late he goes to bed. It literally is like clockwork every night!
I am at a loss here. I don't see any new teeth coming in. Only once in the past 2 weeks has he had an epsiode of night terrors and that was last night. No runny nose, congestion, or sickness.
Sleep deprivation is really starting to get to me and Chase. He is already getting dark circles under his eyes. At 21 months he is lucky to sleep 8 hours a night and the poor baby is so frustrated. You can see the frustration in his face when he tries to sleep and can't.
Any ideas here?
