Hello - I would really appreciate any help as I can't seem to find any past threads which are relevant. My DS has always been a great sleeper. He's settled and happy in Yr1 now so I can't even put his sudden change of sleeping pattern down to starting school. If anyone has any ideas about how I can get him to just relax and stop thinking too hard about the process of getting too sleep I'd be really grateful. Its been over a week now and he's got big bags under his eyes Thankyou!
Thanks for your messages. StealthPolarBear - totally been doing the book thing - he goes through 10 of the things and still wide awake. boohoobabywho - I like the sound of your plan, will try it tonight. Thanks again and hopefully I won't have to ever resort to Medised to break the cycle - ho ho!
I sometimes put a drop of lavender oil on either or both of the DDs (4 and 8) pillows. Partly because lavender really does help you sleep, but also partly for the psychosomatic effect, eg. "I am putting this on, and it's going to help you sleep".
