Sleep advice needed please?!
Good Morning Fellow Mommys!!! :) My 8 month old son was on a schedule of going to bed around 730-800 each night. I was not able to put him to bed for two nights in a row due to a work event, and now his sleep routine has been thrown off. He won't go to sleep until 900-930. I try putting him down early, but all he does is scream and cry for a long time until I come and get him. Any advice on how to get him to bed earlier and stay in bed?
I would start with ten minutes early, then 15 and so on and so forth.. maybe the afternoon nap is too late or too long? Or maybe he's just changing.. But ten minutes to start can make a huge difference and then back up from there..
Also, I think 8 months can be an age where they drop a nap. I know that right before Avery dropped a nap it would be really hard to get her to go to bed at night.
