Funny you posted that b/c Sergio's not that extreme, but he's been having more and more issues falling asleep. Once he's asleep he's out... he'd sleep all day. Just falling asleep is the problem. Funny enough- he is sleeping (more like rolling around at the moment) in Hugo's bed w/ Hugo for the first time ever right now. He's climbing out of the crib, and started showing interest in getting in a regular bed w/ blanket for the first time. (the child detests covers or anything in the bed)
I'm interested to see how this pans out b/c the two of them are talking about sharing a room when we move, but the sleep patterns are different.
If we don't wind the kids down, they have a lot of trouble. We turn off all electronics (tv, computer, games) thirty minutes before bedtime and turn on music. It doesn't work all of the time, but 9/10 they are asleep in fifteen minutes. Typically, I am so tired that as soon as I tumble in bed, I am out! lol
My oldest never sleeps. I honestly don't know how she functions sometimes, but she just doesn't require it. Her mind is always racing, and I'm positive that's the reason why.
When my youngest was an infant, she'd take *maybe* a 15 minute nap once a day and then slept horribly at night. That lasted until she was about 18 months old. Since then she sleeps through the night, but still doesn't require as much sleep as other kids her age. Once she's asleep for the night, though, she's asleep.
Yep! Both of mine are like that. They definitely get it from me. Dh is the type who falls asleep before his head even hits the pillow. I hate that.
That is exactly how it is in my family. I have troubles getting to sleep but Bobby is out like a light the moment he crawls under the covers. My girls have never been great sleepers. Last night Saige wasn't acting tired so I let her stay on our bed and watch a quiet movie while Daddy slept and I attempted to sleep. For a couple hours she would keep checking on me as I was drifting off and she'd kiss me on my head followed up by cute chatter. Even on days when she doesn't nap at all I can't get her to sleep, and she will still wake in the middle of the night. Even Rayne often wakes up while it's still dark and I fear sometimes she might have night terrors.
