Sleeping! Help

Why is it so hard to get a child into a good sleep pattern and then so easy to break it?

Baba has always slept through the night, I know before you all start screaming at me, from about 3 months. But it is the getting the sleep thing that has been the hardest to crack.

We have had a routine with him from an early age, he has a bath, goes down has his milk and then up to bed for a story. That is fine the next part is the problem.

If he falls asleep while listening to a story, fine he will be out till at least 6am. However if he is still awake after the story ends all hell breaks loose. He does not like to be left alone. When we first started doing this we tried every technique in the book. At first nothing worked. But then we noticed that we could sit in the room with our back to him and he didn’t mind. Gradually oh so gradually and so quietly we would manage to move across the room, until we got to the point were we could get up from reading and go and stand by the door. Yeah victory for mummy and daddy. More

Two Year Old Tantrums

Two year old tantrums have hit our house with an almighty bang!

Today we had meltdown! All over a pair of Daddies sunglasses!

Baba wanted to play with the sunglasses and Mr L had said no to him, but Baba persisted and picked them up anyway. Cue first problem of terrible two’s – Baba doesn’t think that he has to listen to anyone, he is right and that is final!

So mummy decided to intervene, wow what a massive mistake. More
