When the old reliable sleep routine wont work for 2yr old
My 2 1/2 yr old was a pro with his sleep routine; lights dimmed, bath, book, milk/cookie, sleep... For the past 2 wks he goofs off anywhere from 30 min-2 hrs: opening closing door, getting up, playing with toys! The complication here is that he's got his 8month old brother in the same room and I am at a loss at how to change up the routine without messing up the routine and/or waking the baby! (our place is real small, so not many options. we dont even watch tv at night to not create another distraction!) What's crazy is that even if my 2 yr old falls asleep at 10pm (8:30pm former sleep time) he's still up at 7am! Should I just have him go to sleep later cause limiting his afternoon nap time hasnt done the trick either. Ah--what to do? Help this tired momma of two!
