I know this group is not super active but in desperate need of some advice or at minimum mutual commiserating so I can feel less like a failure!
My little one will be 16 months on the 31st - for months (like probably 6) she's been sleeping roughly 730-630 every night. This varies by 15-20 minutes each direction every now and then and she'll stretch it to 7 or 7:15 on the weekends. We've also had periods of illness and teeth that had led to some rough nights. However, the past two weeks have been miserable. Sleeping restlessly, trying to wake up at 4 or 4:30 for the day. Her naps at daycare have stayed pretty consistent (her classroom takes 1 a day usually about 2 to 2.5 hours) so I'm really at a loss.
weve been busier than usual with the changing season and our calendar becoming increasingly full but for the most part her bedtime comes first and we have her home and in bed on time almost all the time. I had chalked it up to a couple later nights here and there at first but we've been super strict all week and have seen zero improvement.
So now I'm looking for help! I've read about the 18 month sleep regression (the 4 and 9 month ones about killed me so I'm well read on the subject) but she's only 16 months, has anyone's LOs hit this early? Does it sound like maybe she needs less sleep suddenly so maybe a later bedtime would help? Would love a bedtime closer to 8 (give us some freedom!) so that'd be great too.
anyone with advice or similar stories would be great!!!!
