A colleague is having a really hard time of it with her 18month old boy. She is absolutely shattered and last week she crashed her car on way to work, she said it was due to the sun, but i think it was because she is so tired. I am her supervisor and i am letting her away with alot because she is not functioning well, we work in childcare so she needs to be on the ball. The reason she is so tired is her wee boy doesnt sleep. He sleeps from 8pm until 11/12 and then he thinks its play time and thats him up until 5am when he has and hr before his mum gets him up to go to the childminders. He has his breakfast at childminders and sleeps from 8am until 12 and then 3-5. What can i suggest she tries, she has not tried any sleep training and she is at her wits end. I know you girls will have some advice and maybe even experienced the same.
