  • Might need to snooze later

    I can already feel the affects of a 16 month old girl wanting to play shoe shops at 1am. It took us 2 hours to get her settled properly again for sleep! If it wasn't shoe shops it was the swan or a book.....

      I have a fifteen month old who sleeps all night (not what you want to hear, I know), but you have my sympathies.

      Could do with a sleep myself zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

        Who was it - Galileo? DaVinci?? They took a nap for about 20 seconds or something like that - sat in a chair, held a weight in their hand and dozed off...when the weight hit the floor, they woke up and were far more refreshed than if they had slept longer, and then went on to their brilliant activities...my husband (not anywhere near as smart as them, heh heh) takes power naps - sets the alarm for 15 minutes. He says it helps tremendously...so maybe you could take power naps with a weight in your hand every couple of hours...

        But speaking from a mother's point of view - there ain't nothin' like a solid night's sleep! My daughter's kids - al three of them - wake her up throughout the night...Oliver (14 months old) likes to play "laugh a lot."

        I knew one mom who would get in her recliner with her baby, and turn on the TV real low, and have a bowl of M&Ms (for herself, not the baby) on the table beside her...and she just plain went to sleep and never worried that the baby could become wedged or fall...

          You have my every sympathy, I only spend a fraction of the time with my neice that her parents do and Im warn out within 5 minutes.

          But on the plus side my neice made me into a sausage roll this morning, twice!!

            She normally sleeps through fine - 11 hours and I have to wake her up in the mornings to get her to nursery.
            My daughter did try to put me to bed on her bedroom floor this evening, but promptly tugged my hair to get me up Funnily enough one of my colleagues with a similar age son was also up in the wee small hours with a screaming toddler.... so we spent the day being a pair of zombies and sympathising with each other.
