    This series is so eye opening. It helps explain so much about my little guy (and me and husband!) His high energy and intensity combined with no regularity and high perceptiveness explains why he has such trouble in his carseat and napping on the go! Also why it helps when I use a blanket as a cover when we take walks. I think this series alone has helped me feel so much better about our schedule (or lack of one) and why bedtime takes so long! I want to share this with every parent and teacher I know! Wish I knew these things as a PreK teacher, although my low sensitivity, high adaptability, and low regularity helped so much in that job I am sure! Thanks so much for sharing this!

      Hi @Sami V, thanks so much for your comment! It is amazing how being aware of different temperaments can help so many different aspects of our life. Thanks for reading and sharing! 🙂

    Thank you for this series! My son is 6 months old and sounds EXACTLY like your oldest son. I’ve spent the last 6 months asking myself what the heck I’m doing wrong. Constantly telling myself he is such a happy baby, he has to be an easy baby, so his sleep issues are my fault. I tried everything. When I found this series I realized there isn’t anything I am doing. I just have a “spirited” child that I need to be patient with. I have ordered the book The Spirited Child and I’m excited for our journey. This has taken SO much pressure off of me and made me a better, happier mom. Thank you a million times over.

    My Dd really displays all of this traits which no wonder she has a hard time sleeping:( I swear we have tried it all. Our last resort and only thing that ever works is having her in bed with us.

    I know what you mean Lainie. I was at a family function and kept my 5 month old up past this ‘hyper’ period and boy did we pay for it later! It was doubly hard to get him to sleep and he screamed for far too long. It was horrible.

    “If he is overtired after a late bedtime and is sensitive to stimulation, he might get very hyper to the point you think he might not be tired, but in reality he is exhausted”

    I experienced that this weekend with all our family over. It was definitely bed time, but my 8-month-old daughter was hyper – talking, laughing, etc. Everyone said not to put her to bed, that she clearly wasn’t tired.

    I said, “Trust me, she’s tired,” and she went RIGHT down to sleep. I enjoyed being right around all these experienced parents. 🙂

      @Lainie Go mommy! Way to go sticking to your guns and knowing your baby. 🙂

      @Rachel ((HUGS)) Sometimes it’s hard to know the right thing to do and they seem so innocent and happy playing. It has taken me a long time to ignore the seemingly happy-I’m-not-sleepy signs and put them to bed anyway! 🙂
