Raees' bedtime is at 1am.
And I have no idea how to make him sleep at 'normal' baby-sleeping hours ('normal' referring to anytime between 8-11pm). I thought it was just a phase but it has been going on for so long!
Raees doesn't sleep at 8pm, he takes NAPS at 8pm. He wakes up about an hour later all energized. I tried to keep him asleep...
- dim the bedroom lights...didn't work.
- keep the surrounding quiet...didn't work.
- if he wakes up, feed him straight away...didn't work.
Since all else failed, I tried not to let him sleep at 8pm. But no can do. No matter what I do, he would sleep anyway (wouldn't it be great if he does that at a slightly later time?).
So, he's fully charged after the night time nap. What now? I would make sure no one plays with him and keep the lights dim. At times I fall asleep and Raees would pat me as if asking me to wake up!
He usually sleeps while feeding on the bed...snooze along with me. And he still wakes up 2-3 times a night, which is tolerable.
What should I do to get this little boy to sleep early?
