We've had more bad nights with Anne, so we're resorting to experimenting with the sacred: her nap schedule.
Anne has retained 2 naps much, MUCH longer than Henry did. Of late, it's more like 1.5 naps, because one nap will be a lot shorter than the other, but still. She was clearly tired and would go to sleep 2 separate times between morning wake up and bedtime.
Frankly, she's *still* appearing tired and ready for multiple naps, especially because she's not sleeping well at night and thus tired and cranky in the mornings. But the nights have been so appalling that we're desperate. She often appears wide awake in the middle of the night. Could she be getting too much daytime sleep?
I have no idea, but I'll let you know tomorrow. It's all trial and error over here.
Good luck!! I commiserate with you on crappy sleeping. Annamarie self regulated to one nap a few weeks ago and it's seeming to work well for us. Of course I'm sure it'll change, she likes to keep us on our toes when it comes to sleeping :(ReplyDelete
