View Full Version : All of a sudden she wont go to sleep!
I have had an angel sleeper for the past 29 months... all of a sudden at the beginning of the week she started getting out of her bed and crashing about, playing and taking half her bedroom in to bed with her!! She goes down at 7 (not a problem to put her in bed) but hasnt been going to sleep till gone 830 (last night we had an incident with baby lotion all over the room when i went in to check - so now i have removed all substances as such! :(
Help! what can i do??
Put her in a sleeping bag that's what i need to get for Jenny as she's the same.
I always put the wipes on top of her drawers far back and the sudocream.
I've put a stairgate by her bedroom door now but she cries and calls out 'mummy' 'mummy'!!! so i'm still up everyday at 5.30am as she won't go back to sleep.:rolleyes:
We've just been through this - E started sleeping later and later and not napping during the day. Nightmare. She got more and more tired and so did I - especially as rather than crashing around (sleeping bag so couldn't easily) - she was mainly shouting/screaming/throwing the toys she could reach at the end of the bed.
It seems to have settled by itself - touch wood etc etc for the moment - back to napping at bed at 7:30...phew. I just got a bit stricter at bedtime but also I have noticed it coincided with an improvement in her language so think she couldn't switch off and she just wanted to play etc and sleep was the last thing on her mind.
It *could* be the ending of day time naps but I am hoping for you it is a similar and annoying stage.
Mind you my motto is as long as she doesn't go back to waking 5 times a night - don't panic.
What to do - hope it passes I guess or think about whether she is tired at 7?
Thanks for your replies..
Az i think it is a phase, im really hoping so, i have made sure she has been totally knackered out for the past 2 nights and touch wood she seems to be going down better.. thing is she is now getting up at the crack of dawn, perhaps she just doesnt need as much sleep now? I may have to put her down later than 7, thing is once 7 comes im so exhausted i need my time!!
I pray she doesnt start waking in the night again.. xx
