  1. Help – Our 26 month has never slept through the night. We’ve had a bedtime routine since 4 weeks old. At 5 months we did a 5 night residential stay sleep program with mother craft nurses and got rid of sleep associations e.g. dummy. At 6.5 months we did CIO which got us from 15 waking to 5. At 9 months we had a private sleep consultant come stay with us overnight for a while. She said she couldn’t keep taking our money As nothing more to offer us. She suggested medical assessment. Medical assessment said nothing wrong.
    We were doing well for 6 months, 2 wakings per night but only for 15 mins. Since the regression hit we are back to being up for 3-4 hours per night with inconsolable crying between 11-5. Two neighbours are complaining. Nothing we do can comfort her. Naps are 1-2 hours and always finish by 3. Bedtime between 7:30-8
    How long will this last?
    Do you have anything to offer that’s not routine / association based? We’ve had that assessed by a multitude of experts who agree we are ‘consistent’ with routine and no sleep associations to break.
    At my wits end and all the standard advice doesn’t seem to work.

    • Hi @Louise –
      Thank you for writing to us! I’m So sorry to hear that your family has been struggling with sleep for so long! You all must be exhausted. You’re not alone! We have helped many families that have not had success with other programs and/or sleep consultants, and we’ve been able to help them find their sleep. We’d love to help!
      We have a very holistic view and approach to helping families with their sleep. It’s all about the whole child and figuring out the right mix of everything for that individual child. Our approach is not only holistic, but also often involves breaking goals into pieces. We find that parents are most successful that way because they can slowly start to see progress and have more confidence in both themselves and their child.
      We are different than most sleep consultants in that we personalize advice for each individual family based on their history, goals, baby’s personality, and family philosophies. We do not make blanket statements either. We know that all families are truly unique and therefore will have unique needs and require a unique plan.
      I’d like to offer you a free 15 minute telephone evaluation with an expert sleep consultant, which I think will be really helpful for you. Ou can share all of your concerns with her, and she can give you great insight regarding if and how we can help, and which of our options may be the best fit for you.
      If interested, please schedule your free 15 minute evaluation here:

      Thank you again for writing to us Louise, and hang in there! If you have any additional questions, or if you need any assistance at all, please let us know. We’re here to help!

  2. My 15 month old started doing split nights when I thought he was ready for 1 nap. I don’t think he was and now I’m trying to re-establish his 2 nap routine but his wakings are getting worse and worse, it’s been 5 weeks of 1-3 night wakings sometimes 2 hours long. I just don’t know where to start on how to get his sleeping back to normal and I’m so exhausted and his nighttime sleep is causing insane anxiety

    • Hi Sydni – Thanks for writing and sorry that your 15 month old is struggling with so many night wakings! That is so tough! Hopefully adding the 2nd nap back to the schedule/routine will help! Give it time to smooth out once the nap is back. I’d recommend checking out this sample schedule too, to be sure that he’s getting the right amount of sleep at the right times:

      Good luck Sydni and hang in there!

  3. Just went through a horrible sleep regression starting at about 11.5 months and has slowly gotten better since she turned 13 months. We have also moved her into our bed with us which seemed to have helped with her not waking every hour at night. We also moved her down to one nap a day only. She is just not tired to take a second nap. I know 13 months they say is a little early but she seems ready and fine with only one nap. She is not overtired by bedtime. This girl has tons of energy and could care less about her naps. She is sleeping from 9pm – 8:30/9am. Her one nap is anywhere from 1hour to 1 hour and a half.

    • Hi Jillian,
      Thank you for your comment here! I’m sorry to hear that your daughter’s last sleep regression was so awful, but I’m glad you’ve found a way to get her sleeping that works for your family. All children are different, and I know a lot of the families here reading the comments are always glad to see what worked for other folks, so thank you very much for sharing your experience with us!

  4. I have twin girls who are almost 14 months old. They have slept very well for months now but in the last few days they are taking longer to settle at night. They are waking up later in the morning, I’m thinking as a result of them taking longer to get to sleep, & wonder of this is knocking off their schedule? They are still taking two naps but could they already be ready to drop to one nap, could this be a delayed sleep regression or could it most likely be teething?! I’m not sure what to do!

    • @Claire – Thank you for reading and for sharing with us! Toddlers this age do generally increase their abilities to stay awake for longer periods of time, which may be what you’re seeing. If you haven’t tweaked their schedules to account for this, that may be a good place to start. We do find that many babies drop down to one nap around 15-18 months, which is just around the corner. This transition can happen very quickly or linger and take months before it’s fully “done.” Hang in there and let us know if you need any further support!

  5. My son is 8 months old, he used to nap an hour to 2 a day now he only naps maybe 30-45 minutes, just one nap. Goes to bed at 8, fights it forever when hes asleep he will wake up anywhere from 3-4 times a night and stay up. He is a very grumpy baby! I’m guessing 8 month sleep regression!

    • Hi @Chey – Thanks for writing! Yes! It sounds about right for this 8, 9, or 10 month sleep regression! it sounds like you’ve done you’re reading, so hang in there and I hope it passes quickly!
