Thanks ponyo, although I keep thinking it really could be worse in so many other ways! It all shall pass.

Ah yes I know what you mean about wanting another (not that I do, but I'd feel the same as you if I did!) Lets be honest you've had a pretty awful sleeper with your first though, could a second really be worse?! grin

Glad the speech thing made sense, it did to me too as A has stoppped babbling and starting saying proper words now. I hope this passes very soon for you!

Hi ponyo!
Sorry you are going through similar hmm

It'd make sense if its related to speech as his is developing quite suddenly.

Not sure what I'm asking really, I know there is nothing we can do but endure it and it shall pass...

Tbh I'm struggling because I keep thinking that I want to convince dh to have another but then there is no way I can go through this again/ put dh though similar again... How do people ever want more children???

Thanks for posting.

Hello k2 sorry to hear whats going on. I just came here looking for a thread about 21 month sleep regression bcos A's sleep has gone to pot recently, crying when we put her in bed, staying awake for over an hour, waking frequently in the night etc.

The only words of comfort I have are that it may be linked to speech development and it will pass soon hopefully. I don't have any proper advice but really hope things get better soon (hug) smile

Oh and I also read somewhere that may start getting nightmares around this age/2ish (great hmm)

We are exhausted. 20 mo not wanting to go to bed, then at least twice a week waking up at 2ish am and staying up until 5.
Before I carry on, I am on the side of attachment parenting, so we don't want to do any CIO or similar.
We have always cosleeped, I thought he was through the 18 mo regression but maybe we are still on it. What can I do? I am thinking of keeping a diary to see if there is a pattern. Dh remembers being terrified of sleep a a child, so perhaps it's the same although ds is not terrified when waking up.
I thought sleep was mean to get better now, we are exhausted!confused
