    Can’t be that bad as you are posting on here rather than trying to grab a short nap standing up!

    My daughter has just come downstairs and announced she can’t sleep, she’s nearly three so you’ve a while to go yet. No grown up TV here tonight, will be watching champions league until she goes to sleep.

    Our eldest did not sleep for more that 30 mins at a time for 18 months from about a year old.

    I can hand on heart say that my six month old hasn’t lost me a minutes worth of sleep since being born. She goes down at 7pm and wakes up at 7am! Sorry, I know that’s not helpful – luck of the draw and all that.

    I’m hoping she doesn’t make up for it later in life and cause me loads of grief πŸ˜€

    21 month old has slept for less than 10 nights in last year – I’m ****

    Yep but not until he started walking/running and moved upstairs to the big room at nursery aged 2.

    deluded. I hate the very fibre of your being.

    Yawn.

    Deluded – our 5 year old was like that for his first 12 to 18 months. Now he wakes every night without fail between 11 and midnight. The 3 year old seems to be a bit more random, but I long for the day (night?) when I can sleep like a log like I used to 6 years ago.

    My 2.5 year old sleeps really well, goes to bed almost of his own accord at night and sleeps though until 7.00-7.30ish the next morning with only the occasional blip.

    The 1 year old, however…. Wakes up at the slightest disturbance, can be a nightmare to get down (regularly 10-11pm) and usually wakes up at 3am. Hopefully he will learn from his brother soon!

    I’ve done my fair share of 3am drives to get my first born to sleep. She definitely wasn’t a sleeper and nearly drove both me and my misses stir crazy. At 6 months we decided to try controlled crying. It was tough, but we toughed it out for about a week and it worked a treat and she’s been a great sleeper since. Luckily our second born was a sleeper from the go.

    As soon as the start crawling our bum-shuffling (whatever they take to), they’ll sleep like a log as they’ll be physically knackered.

    Deluded, our first one was like that, then got a minor bug at 8months that knackered up his sleep cycle for ages, you’re in the halcyon days at the moment πŸ˜‰ Post back at 12months!

    BTW deluded my lad was like that. Spot on routine. Then teething (?) Suddenly signalled a change. That till 2yrs old was ..well not great. Bickering-central.

    My boy’s a week old today and has been home 2 days. Wife is sleeping now while she can! I’m about to do the same.

    I do sympathise and I’m not under the misapprehension that her sleep pattern will remain so, but she really does go out like a light. Even through the hot weather we had and more recently the cracking thunder and lightening overhead, which roused me … and I go out like a log.

    She’s a very alert baby during the day and quite active, although I’ve nothing to compare her with – being our first. She’s teething at the moment, but that’s not altered anything.

    I’m going to make a tactical withdraw now in an effort to evade the infamous STW flames and pitch forks πŸ˜€

    It sounds like you all have happy healthy children and be very thankful for that. Take 5 and think about the parents with children with disabilities or terminal illness. I could share stories about the first but thankfully not the second. Love to all and I hope your little ones have a good nights sleep.

    Pah!

    We have to wake our youngest up as the wife and I head off to work! She’s only 16 months years old!

    The wife and I think we’re still operating on a net loss overall after 19 years of parenthood.

    My 2nd child barely slept a whole night until he was at school. He then started sleeping loads this peaked at 17 – but now he sometimes comes in very late/early morning and tries to sleep all day instead . . . . Thats where me and the hoover come in . . . . Payback time πŸ˜€

    I’ve been pushing this buggy back and forwards for ages now.

    My son was seriously ill with feeding/ digestive issus which needed lots of surgery to fix ( valves working back to front) he never kept food down, was continually hungry, and hence never slept!

    UNTILL

    On the morning of his3rd birthday he slept the whole night so what a present for us. Now he sleeps like a baby πŸ™‚ and we are no longer sleep depraved continually.

    So stop whinging and chin up cos soon you wont be able to get the bugger out of bed in a morning πŸ˜‰

    Due to various health issues neither of my daughters really slept through until they were about 3, the younger one only turned 3 last month. Thankfully the health issues are manageable now so no excuses!

    First child slept from 7pm to 8am so we thought we’d get another

    Second slept from 7pm to 8am until she was 12 months old then got up at 5AM every sodding morning for 2 years

    But at least you can dress them up in cutesy clothes and make them look sweet

    I’ve been up since 3 a.m with my youngest (6) who has dyspraxia and seems to be able to get by on very little sleep*.

    He’s currently stood on his bed in the dark, happily rambling on about our summer holidays!

    *unlike his mother who seems to be able to sleep through a medium sized earthquake..

    I’m just going to bed, we have had less than an hour sleep all night. Feel better?

    Wait until she reaches 14 like my son; getting him out of bed is the challenge.

    My eldest lad, now 6, has been an early riser all his life – usually around 5am. My youngest sleeps for England.

    I don’t really mind getting up early although I guarantee that the man who discovered coffee had young kids.

    Had a fail at sleep last night myself… urgh.

    One day we will have this cracked, and it is almost heartening to hear there are people suffering more (though really – you do have my deepest sympathies!). At one stage I was getting 3 hours sleep a night for months on end – that was in stages too so not actually concurrent and effective 3 hours of sleep. That was what I had last night, and it hurts!

    After 7 years of my son not sleeping through, I still wake up during the night – and he’s 32 now!

    Ours only started going through, when teething ended at about 16 months.

    Although reading some of the above posts, I feel quite lucky.

    William 3.5 years now, was tough going, would wake up at 1am, and not go back to sleep. introduced controlled crying at 2, took 3 days to sort it out. now sleeps 7 – 7 pretty much all the time

    Noah – 7 months. teething. say no more. awful for the last three weeks…

    My mother-in-law said that I would never sleep the same again after having children and I laughed at the time, but I don’t laugh now as I have been transformed from a great sleeper to a dreadful sleeper.

    Oh well, I guess it’s worth it.

    I have a 17 month old boy who was an amazing sleeper (7pm – 7am) until he was about 14 month’s old. Now he regularly wakes up at around 12am, goes back off to sleep and then wants to come into bed with us at around 3-4am at which point he spends the rest of the morning kicking me in the head and head-butting and punching my wife.
    Look out for him on the classifieds shortly.

    We were quite smug about our boy’s sleeping and thought we had things sorted until he got to about 6 months but then he started teething and the past 12 months have been bloody hard work. About 2 out of 3 nights he now sleeps through, and when he does wake he just wants to get back to sleep, so having read some of the posts here I really can’t complain!

    Not looking forward to resetting the clock to zero months when no 2 comes along in Feb and having to do it all over again πŸ™

    I honestly believe that it’s the root of most of societies maladies..

    Irritability, short tempter, bickering… I’m not surprised so may couples seem to break up within the first few years of having kids.

    I do sympathise and I’m not under the misapprehension that her sleep pattern will remain so, but she really does go out like a light.

    Mine was like that until about 12 months. Then she decided to scream continuously until we relented and let her into our bed, she then spent the rest of the night repeatedly kicking me in the nuts.

    Enjoy it while it lasts!
