My son is almost 15 months and has never been a great sleeper. We weaned off breastfeeding at 13 months and have successfully sleep trained but it was not easy. We just had a blissful month of him sleeping through the night from 7:30 to 6/6:30 and now we are suddenly back to wake ups at 1am. I have tried to let him cry it out a little to see if he will go back down (~15 minutes) but he is really persistent and hysterical. As soon as we go in to check on him he will calm down and fall asleep while being rocked. He is healthy (though teething) and a great eater. As soon as we put him down to sleep again, he pops up to standing, followed by crying. For example, I could be up for 2 hours easily, picking him up and putting him down until he is asleep or calm again. At this point, since we need our sleep and we are in a bit of survival mode, I pull him into bed with us and he will go down until 630. In parallel to this new wake up, I have had more trouble putting him down at night in. He is crying to sleep for up to an hour some nights. I want to be consistent and not send mixed messages, but I'm concerned he's crying to much to sleep and then again crying in the middle of the night. I'm desperate for ideas?
Also regarding naps, that is also a struggle as I bet you could guess. He is still at 2 naps but maybe transitioning to 1. He generally still has a good morning nap 1-1.5 hours but he seems to be taking a very short, 30 minute naps in the afternoon if any at all.
Thanks so much for your help.
