I have an almost 18 mo old girl. We've sleep trained her 2-3 times. She's never consistently been a good sleeper. For the past 4-6 weeks, she's fighting bed time and instead of falling asleep by 7:30, its more like 8:30/9. Her wake up time hasn't shifted-- she usually wakes up between 6:30-7AM. Also, due to illnesses, she won't fall asleep unless she's laying down with one of us. We can then transfer her into her crib, but she will wake up around 1/1:30AM in which we just give in and pull her into her the daybed or guest bed for the rest of the night. I've refused to let her sleep in our bed.
She goes to daycare and consistently naps for about 2 hours. We've been on the go for the past couple of weekends so she's been taking her nap in car rides. Else, I can usually get her to fall asleep fairly easily (holding her) and can transfer into her crib and nap for 2-2.5 hrs.
I've been hesistant on re-sleep training her because to be honest, I have no idea when/if she's actually tired. Also, her cries are MUCH louder :-( My husband wants to just let her sleep in the daybed moving forward (she knows how to get out of the daybed safely). I feel like it is too early to move her out of her crib.
I am currently about 16 wks pregnant and I need her to sleep again, preferably by 7:30/8PM so I can get my rest!
Thanks in advance!!
