I know this is an old question, but I really wanted to share my experience. My daughter in the 1-2 years range had separation anxiety as well. She would cry and cling to me whenever I would leave and would start worrying if I left the room and she didn't know where I went. Another parent gave me an idea to try and I did and it worked very well for us. ...

My 1 year old is the same way. He takes a nap around 3pm wakes up around 430. He eats at 10,1030 depending on when he wakes up, has a snack around 2 and eats after he wakes up around 430 then has his last meal by 930, and goes to bed around 11. We had to stop letting him take his evening nap about a month ago because he had wayyyy too much energy at night ...

Is there any way of putting the sides back on to the cribs? At this age, it's not the greatest idea to have them be able to run around. Or are they toilet trained already and need the access? Another idea you can try is to convince them you have a magic mommy/daddy camera that can see when they come out of bed and or do mischief. After putting them down for ...

One of my twins did the same thing at that age. Just put them to bed on their back and if they roll over, they roll over. Not much you can really do about it.

When they can roll over themselves, then it's ok to let them choose their own preferred sleeping position. Just be sure to use light-weight coverings, and when you put them to bed don't pull the covers up too far. If you live in a cold climate, put more clothes on the babies, rather than heavier coverings. At 7 months, it's safest if the babies can ...

My youngest son slept on his belly and so did my oldest daughter. I just made sure there was no pillow or loose sheets were near their faces and only allowed them to do so when their cribs were close to my bed.

What has helped me a bit is researching what personality type my toddler is. He fits more in a "social" type. It was recommended that he not spend so much time alone (TV, tablet time) and more one on one and lots of fun. When I eliminated TV and Incorporated fun through the day (exhausting for mama), he reacted differently during night hours. I could tell a ...

Waking a 8 moths old baby for feeding is definitely not necessary. At this age a healthy baby is physically capable of sleeping through the night without eating. She'll fill her belly in the morning, don't worry. Being hungry most likely is not the reason for waking at night. Nightwakings are common even for older children, but they're mostly connected to ...
