Toddler bedtime - losing my mind!
4

kellybean18 · 16/07/2020 19:59

My 2 year old has become really unsettled and takes a good 30-45minutes to fall asleep of an evening. We have tried everything - moving bedtime back, warm milk, lotion etc. She has always had story time and a bath before bed anyway. I really don’t know what more we can do.

She has always been a very good sleeper, would self settle and be quiet within 5 minutes of us leaving the room - this is very much a recent issue. Does anyone have any products/ideas/anything I can try to help?

What time does she go to bed? Have you tried putting her to bed 30 min later? Avoid also screens two hours before bedtime.

@LeGrandBleu yes that’s exactly what we did, moved everything back half an hour. Hasn’t made a huge amount of difference in terms of the time it takes for her to settle. She doesn’t watch huge amounts of Tv, we have dinner and milk/story time for a good hour or so before her bath and then bed.

At what time do you put her to bed? Does she have a nap or two during the day still?

@LeGrandBleu 7/7.30... she does still nap yes. We do try cutting this short where possible but has little effect, or she will just fall asleep
