You know when you get out of the newborn phase and your kid starts sleeping through the night?
And then, they regress and don’t sleep. At all?
And, then, once they’re no longer an infant and solidly a toddler and they start sleeping again?
And … you get used to that?
And then they stop sleeping?
And only want mom?
FOR, LIKE, MONTHS.
Not that I’m talking from personal experience here or anything …
So, other mamas: please, for the love of all that is sleeping and good, have you been through this? How did you deal with it? What toddler sleep tips can you share? We’ve tried moving her bedtime up. We’ve tried napping. Not napping. We have a set bedtime ritual. We talk about the importance of rest and sleep. We limit screen time and sugar before bed. She’s getting plenty of physical activity. And she’s currently demanding to sleep with her light on, door open and me in the room — no exceptions.
And if you’re going through toddler sleep probs, too, wanna get virtual coffee? I’ll buy.
Of course, if we have a breakthrough, you’ll be the first to know because I will not be able to keep my excitement contained. In the meantime, hit us up on Instagram. I’ll be sharing my sleep struggles and successes and more in IG stories! —Jenn
