My daughter turned 1 year August 15 and for the past 2-3 weeks she has been protesting sleep at home and daycare. Not just naps but at night too. Online i was reading and it said babies around this age should be getting 10-13 hours of sleep. However i don't think it is even 10 hours of sleep. At night she is up 1-2 times a night for 1-2 hours each time before it would be for max of 15-20 min for a bottle and i have tried water and formula bottles to get her back to sleep and nothing works, she hates the water to get her back to sleep! Last night it took her 2 1/2 hours to fall back asleep. It got even worse after she had 6 days of diarrhea ending on her year birthday. She was doing decent with waking up and it just keeps gradually getting worse and worse! Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get her to nap/ sleep at night better. We have tried a bunch of things like shorter naps, bedtime bath, i have tried tylenol before bed for teething. And nothing seems to be working for me. Even going to bed later doesn't seem to be working!
