My LO has never been the greatest sleeper, but before the time change she was at least sleeping from 7:30pm/8pm - about 5:30am. We wake up for work about 5:15/5:30 so this was doable. Now with the time change, I can’t get her to sleep past 4:45am. She wakes up and screams until I come in there and get her. Then I bring her in bed with us and she falls right back to sleep. If I try to calm her down and leave her in her crib she won’t have it. This morning I tried to let her CIO for 15 min, but I almost feel like she is too old for CIO.
Any suggestions on what to do? I’ve tried keeping her up later at night, but she is soooo fussy when I do that. She take two long naps during the day, but she’s not getting her recommended sleep at night and I can tell she looks tired during the day. She has a nightlight, soft music, and a very small stuffed toy in her crib with her. What else can I try? We are all so sleep deprived.
