You wont believe it.......

He slept...in a strangers house that he has never slept at before at fdc.....

FOR 2 HOURS rolleyes.gif

She put him down at 10.30 and didnt wake till 12.30 wub.gif

She has a ceiling fan, I wonder if thats the secret laugh.gif

Another question. Do you make the room dark when your little one goes for day sleeps?

I make it darker but not night dark iykwim, wonder if that is having an effect??

Ems, when you said his room was cool and had a fan, I assumed you meant ceiling fan. If it's only a pedestal fan then I am guessing that he is definitely too hot to sleep any longer than 1 hour. I know our ceiling fans cool the rooms down slightly and pedestal do nothing. But the ceiling fan doesn't cool Taylor's room down enough for her to be comfy when sleeping in summer during the day.

Re: light in the room, I don't have the blinds completely open, but I do let some light in.

Lets hope your little man can do 2 hours again smile.gif


ETA: I watch 'temps' all the time, but I also consider humidity as well.

We have a pedestal fan in his room here, at fdc she had a ceiling fan. We have talked about getting one installed, maybe worth looking into further. In the last week the humidity has been around 80% which is crap for anyone ahh got to love qld

Typical isn't it Ems. Of course they will do it for someone else but not you. Maybe he's getting the idea. smile.gif

Amy had to have an arvo sleep the other day but it was only 30 mins and she also had 2 naps yesterday as we went to Sydney and couldn't keep her awake in the car. But today we're back on track with one sleep. She slept again for 45 mins on the dot. From 12-12:45pm. She was feral this arvo but we got thru it!! Tomorrow she will have to go down a little later as we have a clinic appt at 12pm so that should be fun! I highly doubt she will ever sleep longer than 45 mins though and if she does i will be like this for a long time after as will hubby ohmy.gif ohmy.gif ohmy.gif ohmy.gif biggrin.gif

Michelle, she does self settle to go to sleep but most nights she will wake and protest (for a minute or two) after the first few 40 mins and then repeat and will then settle into a sleep in a couple of hours. I think that she mainly does this as she is so overtired but nothing i have ever done has worked on getting her to sleep longer during the day. I think i'm just accepting that is her. Her cousin is very similar. Dropped all day sleeps when she was 20 months. ohmy.gif

I don't think her room is too hot but it may be. We are thinking about getting an air cond for her room. Just to get hubby to agree!! blink.gif She hates our ceiling fan in our room so that is probably out of the question.

I close our curtains fully for all her sleeps. I think it just helps stop some of the heat..

we are the same in that TAylor will go to bed later rather than earlier for her day sleep.

They do say that one of the reasons for catnapping is that they are not tired enough for a 'sleep'.

Even though Taylor goes to sleep at 1pm, I can see some tired signs sometimes alot earlier than that, but know that it is way to early for her to go to sleep and that she isn't tired enough to sleep for a couple of hours.


That's why we keep Will up till after lunch. If he goes down at 11 or 11.30 he catnaps then is cranky. Keeping him up till after lunch works much better - the hard bit is keeping him up.

He loves swimming so we started taking him swimming at 11am which kept him awake and happy until we got home to have lunch and sleep.

We have ceiling fans.A fair bit more better at circulationg than teh pedastal.

We have celing fans.If you get the remote control ones just get your hubby to put it in.Its simple you just use the wires for the light and plug it in.

Is hubby half handy?????/ unsure.gif

Really Chelle? Thats interesting I have never seen them. Bunnings would have them? Hubby is a bit of a handy man. That was half my reason for waiting, the electrician charges are soooo expenisive! Must look into that.

Well he is still up and its 11.22am he is so tired im getting over it! laugh.gif but trying to push him out a little bit longer...living on the egde HAHAHA

Melissa we might see if we can go swimming too. Just would hate her to fall asleep in the car on the way home.

Ems, how did he go today?

I put Amy down at 12:30pm today and she is just stirring now so looks like another 45 mins for her! Now only 6 or so hours til her bedtime!! blink.gif I might try her at 1pm next week. See how she goes.

So I read up on SOS and we are now on the 16mnth old routine, well attempting it.

Yep fed him up nice and full Amy at 11.30am and into bed at midday. He slept for 1.5hrs biggrin.gif not the 2.5hrs I was hoping for but an improvement on an hour. Ow yes by 11.45 it was living on the edge Amy pmsl laugh.gif

Woody sorry to hear about only 45min! cheeky girl. Did she go back to sleep? Hmm did she have her lunch before bed?

How is everyone else going with day sleeps?

Ems, what an improvment. Good on your little boy for doing 1.5 hours.

No my little monster didn't go back to sleep. I put her to bed at 6:30 as she was dead tired. I'm going to try 1pm tomorrow and see how that goes. If i can keep her up later even if she still only sleeps for 40mins then at least when she wakes it will be a little closer to bedtime. As i said before i don't think she will ever sleep longer but the main thing will be to stretch out her sleep.

Yeah she did have lunch before she went to bed too.
