Toddlers: 12 - 24 Months

Sleep? Anyone?

Can anyone help me? My 20 month old can only be put to sleep by me because (I admit it's my fault) he breastfeeds when he wakes and goes to sleep night and nap. As for tantrums ohhhh he's there alright! I am (maybe too) firm and consistent and that seems to help but he throws a few good ones! I am tired considering I also have a very demanding 8yr old and am up STILL 2-3 times a night!

    I guess it depends on what you are comfortable with. Is your 20 month still in a crib? If so, I'd recommend sleep training, particularly CIO. Once he is out of the crib, I have no idea how sleep training works or can work so I'd suggest doing it sooner rather than later. Whatever you decide to do, consistency is key. GL!

    I used the book the sleep easy solution which has recommendations for different ages and different sleeping arrangements.  I used it to sleep train my son and really liked it.  I've referred back to it a couple of times.  Initially I used it to just get him to wake up only once or twice a night instead of every hour.  Then I went back to it recently to get him to sleep through the night.  But I agree consistency is the key with whatever you choose to do.
