Slide 1: ==== ==== Get the Best Book on Getting Toddlers to Sleep "Go The F**ck to Sleep" here... http://tinyurl.com/7oo5f67 ==== ==== My toddler recently hit 22 months old and she was starting to pull herself up and over the top of her cot. When she arrived we bought a cot bed, which can be converted from a cot to a bed when the time is right. The time was definitely right when I found her half way over the top of her cot. The next day when she was napping we heard a loud thud and a lot of crying - she had finally climbed all the way out and fallen. It was out with the tools and the cot was to become a bed that day. This is when our problems really started. The first time she was put into her bed configuration she hated it. It took longer to settle her each night and as soon as we left her, she got out of bed and followed us to the door. There she would stay calling out, crying, protesting and getting very upset. One of us would go back and put her into bed then spend up to 20 minutes settling her again. Just when we thought she'd fallen asleep and we left, she would sense our departure and it was back to the start all over again. After a few days had passed we didn't know what to do. Were we doing this all wrong? Is it normal? Are we the only ones suffering this? We finally gave in and made a call to our health visitor who came to see us at home to give us advice and tips on how to get a toddler to sleep. The key to all this is to set out a new bedtime routine and stick to it. Young children need routine and regularity in their lives. This helps a great deal with their sleep patterns too. Our situation was worsened as we also have a 3 month baby that needs our attention and our toddler may be feeling a bit second best. There are two main ways of getting a toddler to sleep through the night. The Direct Approach This method takes around 7 days and involves leaving your child for extended lengths of time or 'planned ignoring'. It can be a tough process but is worthwhile in the long run. Using your new bedtime routine up until your child goes to bed, settle them and tell them something like this: "It's time to go to sleep. You must stay in your own bed until morning, don't get out of bed and don't cry. If you do I will not come back. If you stay in your bed until the morning you will get a nice surprise." Give them a kiss, say goodnight then leave decisively. This can be a difficult process for some parents but as the nights pass your toddler should cry less and less, eventually settling themselves. Be prepared for your child to cry for a number of hours at first. Before they go to sleep it is a good idea to read a story to your child. This helps to relax them and should be part of their routine. There are many free bedtime stories for kids online that can be downloaded and printed. You can even write your own. The Gentle Approach
Slide 2: This method is a little kinder on the child and it is more reassuring for the parents. It will take a little longer at around 10 days, maybe more. Still using the bedtime routine and settling them into bed with their instructions, this time you leave but return after 2 minutes if they are still crying. Stay for 1 minute as you settle them then leave again. This time you may return after 4 minutes and again stay for just 1 minute before leaving them again. Each time you leave double the time before you return again, i.e. 2, 4, 8, 16... minutes. The gentle approach, as its name suggests is probably more suited to parents who prefer not to leave their children in such a state of distress and need to reassure themselves as well as their child. We used the direct approach and it took between 10 and 14 days. As I said earlier we have a baby under 4 moths as well so there is an extra element to our circumstances. The first few nights were hell. She stood at her baby gated door and cried and sobbed for hours. One night she went from 7:00pm until gone 1:00am. We just had to leave her alone until she eventually fell asleep at the door and we could pick her up and put her back in bed. It was OK to do this as she did not know we are returning to her. After a few nights our little girl cried for less time but still held her vigil at the bedroom door. After a week the results came as one night I put her down to bed with her cuddly dog. I kissed her dog, I kissed her, she kissed her dog and said goodnight. I walked out and closed her door behind me. That was it; from that night on she goes to bed and stays their without a fuss. She will sleep right the way through the night until morning. We are so pleased. Both these methods work very well and although it appears that your child is in distress, no actual harm will come to them. You must remember that you are not alone and other parents go through the same thing in one way or another. Choose a method that suits you best and stick to it.
