Not another one. Please not another one. Just when we thought we had got through the worst of the sleep-related battles, another regression appears to have come along.
TJ is nearly a year old, which according to Google, is a common age for them to decide sleep isn’t for them. Again.
It had been going so well. A reliable 90 ish minute cot nap in the morning, and another nap of varying length in the afternoon. He was sleeping at nursery. And sleeping at night.
Something has to give – and it’s the day naps at home.
I think someone at nursery – a kid from an older group – whispered to TJ “hey, you know you don’t have to do this napping stuff”. And TJ relished the thought.
This has resulted in three days (and counting) of battles for morning naps and a regular-as-clockwork 30 minute wake up with a will he/won’t he go back to sleep few minutes of tension thrown in for good measure.
I’m going to keep going as TJ may feel like he doesn’t need the break – but I sure do.
In years to come, I’ll laugh at this even being considered an issue. Probably.
