Not Napping

Ever since we got back from our road trip, DS has not been sleeping well. We got back last Monday, he's gone down successfully for a full nap twice since. Twice. The only way I can get him to sleep longer is if I hold him and I really cannot start THAT habit.

Unfortunately, the poor sleep habits are also ruining his nighttime sleep (which was pretty rubbish before our trip). He wakes up 4x a night and will not go down unless he's nursed and rocked to sleep and still I have moments when he gets restless and might have to be put to sleep 3x in one waking.

We're starting sleep training soon, something I was putting off until after our road trip on purpose when DS's sleep habits first went down the crapper back in October thanks to teething. I just have to wait for DH to have enough time off that he can really help me through the first few nights and still get up early for work the next morning. In the mean time, I am exhausted and it's making me a major grouch with my two daughters. Just venting, here, maybe looking for a little sympathy and "I've been theres" and "It'll get betters".

Re: Not Napping

  • DD always has trouble adjusting and catching up and then getting back to routine after. We went camping in Sept. and then stayed at my ILs for thanksgiving weekend and it was the same. It will get better!

  • This has been us for the past couple weeks.  We had family in town and then went out of town.  His sleep has been off due to all of this.  We are starting to get back into the routine, but I have just decided to give up when there is disruption in our schedule with traveling or having visitors.  He was waking up 3x/night instead of his usual 1x.  Then bedtime was very hard - pushing it from 7:30 to 10pm some nights.  Hopefully things get better for you soon.
