Today, I am 37 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I’m sat with the monitor listening to my 2 year old shout and sing in his bed. He’s been up there for half an hour and showing no signs of settling down! This has been going on for a week now. He just doesn’t want to nap during the day.
Usually I’d blog about this sort of thing once I’d found a solution. But in my very pregnant state, I am so desperate for a break during the day that I wondered if anyone had any tips? I’ve already moved his bedtime back slightly and started waking him up earlier (by half an hour either side) in a bid to make him more tired during the day, but no luck yet!!
He’s always been very good at settling down in his bed. But as we move into spring, I have notice his room is much lighter (considering black out blinds and a de-clutter as he has toys in his room … I wonder if they’re distracting him? Although he doesn’t get out of bed to play).
When new baby arrives (any day now!) I imagine I’ll treasure a few toddler free hours after lunch (if I can get them back). Send help/ideas, please.
