How does your children sleep? Are they good sleepers? Do they nap? Do they have sleep apnea?

Thank you, tasha_mae, for my siggy!

sleep....Sleep....SLEEP....I dont know what that word is. The only time she ever slept good is when they had her on dilantin when she was first dx'd with her siezures. Come to find out the only reason she slept so good was because she had way to much in her system because she doesnt metabolize it like normal people. She has the same issues with anesthesia

well Avery is a better sleeper then her sister but worse at the same time.

Nichole (no health problems) was up every 3 hours till around umm 3 or so... night weaned at 15 months. She just started actually sleeping 12 hours at night in the last few months (she is 5) she still gets up most nights to pee and usually that requires me as well.

Avery is 19 months old and started sleeping through the night 912 hours) 2 months ago when we went back on prevacid. So better there. BUT she is unpredictable. Sometimes she sleeps through, sometimes she wakes 1-3 times but goes right back to sleep, other times she is up and screaming for 1-3 hours before going back to sleep. you just never know

Sleep? Master TJ only sleeps when he thinks he should. Lately he has been falling asleep around 2-3am, and then waking up around noon.

Yes Ellie does sleep. Okay let me rephrase that.... She *falls asleep* if we follow her bedtime routine exactly. (and boy is that a production) As for staying asleep....occasionally we'll get a couple of good nights in a row. But more often than not, she's awake every few hours either because she's scared or in pain or both. Depending on what woke her up, it can take anywhere from a few minutes to more than an hour to get her back to sleep.

Naps??? I actually wish she'd give them up. But it's obviously not going to happen any time soon. She actually asks to take a nap most days. (Just the fact that she's asking is a huge deal for her)

Here's hoping we all get a good nights sleep tonight! (there's always hope right?)

Daniel only falls asleep when given melatonin and is up many [email protected] but it varies from only a few minutes to being up all night/day long. It all depends on how he's doing that day. When we're lucky he sleeps 9 hours at once. That doesn't typically happen more than a few times a week. Which that is of course amazing and easy.....that is compared to what we used to go through when he would stay up for days on end with at most 20 minute naps here or there. Naps were given up at about a year or so old. If he takes one now there is no [email protected] I'm thankful we've gotten through the hardest sleep issues, or at least I hope we have.
