Just returned from HK. DS has jetlag and is sleeping. Should I wake him to get him back on track? Also, he slept in our room on hols and often in bed with us due to the jetlag going out. Now he won't sleep without being rocked or in my arms. He was doing well before we left. I could leave him when tired and he would go to sleep on his own. Now he has to be held and if I put him in cot he stands up and gets cries. Will he ever get back to before?
Wake him - but perhaps not as early as usual- need to be eased back on to right time, if you do it naturally its is reckoned to be a day per hours difference to recover - you can probably force the issue some.
14 mths. we got back sat night. he's now awake after about 1 hr nap. The afternoon nap he really wants to keep sleeping as it's night time in HK. We woke him yesterday after 2 hrs and he was really grumpy. But if I let him sleep am worried he will wake in the night. Last night he slept from 7.30pm, woke at 11pm and in bed with me. Then slept with a few light wakes and needed patting/ laying back down, slept 'til 5.20am. It took us at least 5 days on way out so am expecting the same. Am concerned he will go back to needing assistance to fall asleep. We had just got into good routine and him being able to settle himself.
