I feel like I have a newborn! OK Addie doesn't quite wake up every few hours, but she DID wake up FOUR times last night. What the heck?!? And then she woke up for the day at the crack of dawn...or at least what I consider the crack of dawn-- 6:50 am!
As far as I know, I am doing all of the "bedtime stuff" right...we have the routine down:
1. Sippy cup of warm milk
2. Change Diaper, Slather on Bedtime Lotion, Change her into PJ's
3. Story Time
4. Addison says goodnight to her "fishies", and to her baby doll, and we get out her binky (she only gets it at bedtime)
6. Hugs and kisses From Mom and Dad
7. Addison snuggles with her favorite "blanky" in her crib and almost ALWAYS falls right asleep.
Sounds good right? She doesn't cry, struggle, or anything. She WANTS to get into bed and is excited when it is time.
I have tried adjusting her naps so that she doesn't sleep as much during the day, I have tried putting her to bed later, I have tried feeding her more before bedtime...nothing is working! Toddlers don't get hungry THAT often do they? I have been a mom for a year and a half now, but I still feel like I don't know anything! Help!
