|luadoinverno||09:44 am - Sleep question|
Just wondering what everyone's litle ones sleep schedules are like. Naps/bedtimes that sort of thing.
My daughter has not slept through the night in about a month and I'm thinking of changing her schedule a little but not really sure what to try.

Teagan goes down around 8pm, and sleeps until 7am. Sometimes he wakes up, but that is useually if I leave the bed to go to the washroom (still co-sleeping). It is the mornings we are having problems with. He used to be so happy when he woke up. Now the first thing he does is run to the kitchen and scream his head off.
no naps? maybe that's the problem with Meaghan. She usually has a nap at 10am until about 11:30.
Naps really depend on what we are doing that day. Somedays he takes naps, but it really isn't a big thing with him. I find the days he does not take naps, he has a much better snooze at night. But some days he just needs his naps.
We do not really have a rountine or a schedule. We pretty much just roll with things. I know that does not work for most people, but it does for us. The only thing that is pretty constant is his bedtime.
Most of the time, my daughter goes to bed between 7 and 8, and I get her up about 6, if she doesn't wake up early. At daycare, she usually takes a short morning nap still (only about half an hour), and a longer afternoon nap (1 to 2 hours). On my days off, I tend to skip the morning nap so that she takes a 2-3 hour or even longer nap in the afternoon.
I try hard to keep her bedtime consistent because it really does affect her when she stays up too late. Even an hour past her normal bedtime changes her mood and behavior the next day.
My daughter has only slept through the night 3 times. We co-sleep and she "wakes" to nurse 1-3 times over the 11 hours she spends in bed each night.
I can count on one hand the number of nights my little one has slept through the night *sigh*
my son slept through the night from day 1 ... I wish daughter was the same way.
