    I agree with you both! My son is almost 17 months and is soooo sensitive and perceptive and intense! He doesn’t like loud cars or motorcycles when they drive by. He doesn’t like toys that make too much noise. He will see the smallest speck of dirt and try to pick it up. He lets me know when he spills something. I’m so glad I read this temperament series! I look forward to the rest but I’m sure my son is spirited! I’m going to buy the book that you refer to “Raising Your Spirited Child.” My husband and I are both sensitive and I’m perceptive and intense so I think that will be a good guide for us in raising our son. Now I know why I’m still having such problems with his sleep but thanks to you, Nicole, he is already starting to get better!

      @Emily I’m glad my temperament series is helping you get to know your son, better! I’m even happier he’s sleeping so well after we started your consultations! 🙂

    Our little boy is very sensitive and perceptive. It’s just like you said, he doesn’t miss a thing. You could sit with him in a room that is pitch black and he will still find something to stare at to keep himself awake. He is so sensitive that the slightest noise will wake him, especially if he is overtired. It buggs me when people say the reason he has trouble sleeping outside of our home is because we keep our house too quite. We have always exposed him to a moderate to high amount of noise even before he was born and he is still the way he is. We began running a humidifier in his room because it was our it was dry and found that it seems to really help him block out the noise. When we are ready to put him in his crib, we often wait til the furnace kicks on, it seems to help ease the transfer.

      @Erin It would drive me crazy when people would say to make more noise when my son slept! I even wrote an article about it. https://www.babysleepsite.com/how-we-sleep/baby-sleep-noise-sound . My son was in a noisy daycare for over 8 months (before we kept him home partially b/c of his sleep issues) and if he didn’t get used to noise then, he was never going to!
