My son just turned one year old, and he used to sleep from 7:00 pm until 6:30 or 7:00 am the following morning, but now he wakes around 3:30. My husband or I will rock him back to sleep quickly (only if he's wide awake, rather than mostly sleepy - we let him put himself back to sleep then), but then he wakes again at 5 for the day. I need to wake at 5 to get ready for work before getting my son ready for day care, and my husband normally sleeps till 6:30 when I usually get my son up, but that's obviously changed now. My son still takes two naps a day (1-1.5 hours each when he's at home, about .5-1 hour each at day care), and is sufficiently tired by 7, but I'd like him to sleep later, not necessarily for myself, but because I think he needs more sleep - maybe I'm wrong. any suggestions? he's had a cold for a few weeks, which is better some nights, worse others and I have to sleep sitting up on the couch, holding him upright so he can breathe through his nose (mouth breathing seems to make him cry - we think his throat hurts); we also know he has two new teeth moving in - is this just the result of teething or waking up early because of a sore throat?
Why won't you try to look out for something good in this one. Consult a doctor in order to make things work out well and fine. Also, try to check out the kids bed that your child is sleeping. It might cause a whole lot of factor in order to make things work out for the long run. I hope that everything would work out well in this one.
