Just back from the sleep clinic. It sounds promising but it's a slow process. They only change a couple of things at a time and it can take a few weeks to sort. That's ok by me though as it's the support I think I need the most.

This week we're keeping a sleep diary.
We've also been asked to change her diet a bit as she's so active the hv thinks she possibly needs more frequent, smaller meals with more carbs. I think it's a good step. Something I hadn't really thought about either. She said that especially for her dinner, up her slow releasing carbs, so include avocado (Marlie hates avo, so she suggested mixing it with banana), brown rice and sweet potatoes. She also said for her snacks to try to give her eggy bread cut up and give her a soldier with some fruit. I'll try anything! I'll let you know how we get on.

OMG!! My normally, exceptionally good sleeper has become a horror overnight! She has slept through properly since about 6weeks old and now, at nearly 18 months she is awful! For the past week or so, she goes to bed at her normal time and screams and screams, she can barely breathe, she sobs it's horrendous! The first night we ran in because we thought she was choking we were so relieved that, instinctively picked her up and now, since then it's been awful. I still panic though because she is beside herself. I have no idea what to do! One idea I do have is that perhaps she's sleeping too much during the day - she has about 3 hours. If I cut this down, do you think it would help? How much sleep should an 18 month old have? She's been at it an hour now!!

Past couple of weeks here have been awful. Im on some new medication which is making me realy tired and Seth has been sleeping really really badly. We've decided he's not coming in our bed anymore. If he cries, we go through to check he's ok, pop his dummy in then leave him and if he cries he cries. It's heartbreaking but he's not properly awake and we don't let him get into a state. If he gets too worked up we go straight through and calm him down.

Last night was ok, he woke twice (once we gave him calpol because he had a temp and the other his nappy leaked so we changed him and put him in the travel cot which is still set up. Never cam into our bed once. It's awful listening to him cry but he seems fine today.

Hopefully tonight will be easier.

I might google it, I thought it might be nightmares but I didnt know if they got them at this age, thanks x

*edit* read up about nightmare/night terrors and it sounds exactly like that except that it says after 15/20 minutes they settle down into sleep again but he doesn't he pretty much cried last night for 3 1/2 hours.

Bleurgh dont know what to do x
