My son just turned 2, and he goes through 2-3 week long periods of waking up at 4 or 5 in the morning. Nothing in his routine or diet changed, he just wakes up super early instead of 6-7 like he does normally. Then, when it’s nap time, he screams and screams and refuses to lay down with me holding him and everything. He ends up not taking a nap and is absolutely miserable because he’s tired. He doesn’t seem to feel bad, other than being tired, but I noticed he’s teething. Could that be disruptive to his sleeping? It only lasts a couple of weeks and then he’s back to normal.
He could most definitely be getting his 2 year old molars…hylands oral relief tablets are great and help with the fussiness. And when he seems like he’s uncomfortable give him a dose of Tylenol it helps with the pain or fever if he does get one from the teething
stop babying him, he’s becoming independent.
Try putting him to bed between 8:30 and 9
Could be him getting his 2 year molars and such
Those 2yr molars can be super painful coming in. And can disrupt normal patterns of any daily activity or night time sleep.
For afternoon nap take him for 10 to 15 min ride in car he’ll be asleep in no time. Carry thin in and put to bed
