Why, oh why..


Recommended Posts

has my nearly 15 month old baby started having problems with her sleep again! After months of decent sleep 7pm-7am, she has suddenly decided to start waking up and screaming (last night from 1045pm-1am) - no idea why (no teeth coming through, no major change to routine - although she has just started to walk, no illness - although she did have her MMR about 4 weeks ago). Nothing seems to settle her apart from being picked up and cuddled in our bed. But then we don't get any sleep. Am feeling frazzled - I thought those days were over!! Arghh...rant over. Any tips very gratefully received, L

I think what you describe is normal, unfortunately! Our daughter has had a few blips in sleeping, and found the same as you, that only sleeping in our bed sorted her out. The first few times, I totally freaked out that this was a slippery slope and we'd end up co-sleeping until she was a teenager (wrong!!), BUT although we didn't get the best sleep while she was in our bed, we did get SOME sleep. She was comforted through whatever was bothering her, and best of all, it was a temporary hitch and soon routine was reinstated. Looking back, the most traumatic part of it for me was thinking it was part of some terrible poor sleep long term pattern and freaking myself out about that.

On a practical note, can you get a bigger bed to help ease you through these blips?

    • As it isn't law yet to microchip a cat (becomes law in June this year) then whisking off a cat with no microchip to get neutered and rehomed may well be taking someone's pet.  There was a proposal on here recently to "rescue" big ginger who looks in a bad way but actually has a living home and is being well cared for.  So before whipping him off to whip them off, make 100% sure he is a stray. 
    • I am curious dulwich dweller, as someone who claims to regularly use a bus you seem to be arguing for their reduction based on the fact that we aren't packing them in like cattle. Maybe that's the issue, covid has made people reluctant to use packed buses and by reducing them so they are fuller, some would say over full, then it both becomes harder to find space and discourages people from using them. 🤔  Whilst an empty bus is seen inefficient financially by some, it may well encourage more people to use it as they'll don't feel like cattle going for slaughter.  Or do you think that we need the Japanese pushers to pack more people into buses. ?   
    • The honest truth is a perception?
    • The honest truth is for every one car I see do any of those, I see 50 cyclists jumping lights, using the pavement or failing to stop for pedestrians.  Yes it happens but proportionally cyclists seem to flout the law more than cars drivers.  As I said it's perception.
