Bed time techniques??
My Daughter Avery (10 months old) has started having trouble sleeping alone.. Typically she will sleep in her pack N' play in my bedroom because her room doesn't have A/C. Other wise I try to have her sleep in her crib on cool nights. Well just recently she wont sleep alone at all. If I even set her in her pack n play, she screams at the top of her lungs. Now she has only done this the past 2 nights so i am hoping tonight is different, the past 2 nights i wasn't able to put her down alone until about 1:30 am when she was in a deep sleep. My fiance blames it on me for having her sleep with me on nights he works late.. but it isn't the first time I have done that. She usually sleeps anywhere as long as she has something soft and a bottle, I am trying to start a new routine to get her to sleep alone. Today after lunch, she went down around 1:45pm I fed her , gave her a bath and gave her a warm bottle she slept for about an hour in her crib, than after dinner I let her play until about 8:45pm she looked as if she was getting sleepy so I bathed her with her bed time soap, put her in her crib with a warm bottle and read a book to her, she dozed but once her bottle was gone she got up and started playing.. it is 9:46pm now and she is getting a bit fussy and rubbing her eyes , Im gonna try this again in the crib. Wish me luck! & any suggestions will be helpful!
For the amount of sleep she gets, she goes to bed between 7:30/8:00, wakes up between 4:30 an 5:30 to nurse, then sleeps until 7:00/7:30. At daycare, she usually takes two naps and sleeps about 2 - 2.5 hours total during the day.
Working on a consistent routine for bed time can also help. My daughter is also 10 months and loves books and being read to. Maybe try that also.
