Last week I mentioned an issue I have with my toddler’s nap and bedtime routine.
It’s gotten better, but it’s still not ideal.
Thank you for all the feed back. I really appreciate how thoughtful you all are! It’s so nice to know I’m not alone and to have help finding the right resources. Many days this new mom thing can feel pretty scarey and lonely and this blog really helps. I feel so blessed to have such amazing support!
I plan on going to the library and/or bookstore this week to look for “The Sleep Lady’s Good Night Sleep Tight” (recommendation courtesy of Alexia from Babies & Bacon) and “Secrets of the Baby Whisperer for Toddlers” (recommendation courtesy of Diana from Hormonal Imbalances). I’m also going to check out The Baby Sleep Site as my friend Ashley kindly recommended via text (Thanks Ashley!).
As for what’s better? I took a new stuffed animal I had bought for him out of his room and, though he is still objecting, he’s much less persistent.
I also agree with you, Kristen. She commented on my personal Facebook page with: “It’s his age. He is now realizing what’s going on and he will be by himself. At least the talking is calming him down.”. Every day holds more tantrums in general, so I shouldn’t be surprised that he’s being obstinate when it comes to sleeping, when he’d obviously rather play until he passes out.
I will let you know if I have any “AH HA!” moments as I look over the resources I mentioned. Thank you again for all the help! I hope your weekends were fun and you’re enjoying a relaxing Sunday!
