Diaper Update

It has been over a week with no diapers at night. There have been no accidents.  I have realized that wanting a diaper is more of a bed time shenanigan then really wanting a diaper. It has been added to her:

more water please! (when in the day if I try to give her water she throws a major fit),

I miss daddy (or mommy or who ever is not home),

Where is bear? (she hid it under the bed or in the shopping cart) repertoire.

Anything to stay up just a few more minutes.

I wonder how the time change will effect bedtime.

  1. Well, at least you figured it out. 🙂

    Michael tries to stay up later, too, which I don’t understand since we all go to bed at the same time. I guess it’s just so much fun being a toddler that it’s too hard to end the day! For us, the struggle is getting him ready for bed (doesn’t want to put on his pj’s or brush his teeth). Once he’s ready, I usually just have to pick him up and carry him into the bedroom. He’s knows the day is over then and asks for milk. I love the nights he falls asleep nursing (doesn’t always work, though).

    Since we are on the topic of sleep…I did read something interesting in the Dr. Sears Nighttime Parenting about how high need children have trouble with sleep. They are just wired that way. They have an immature stimulus barrier–it’s hard for them to block things out, even when they are sleeping. They also have trouble with transitions (like getting ready for bed or actually going to sleep). There is more info here: http://www.askdrsears.com/html/7/T070900.asp

    Arora has always struck me as being a high-needs child, so maybe this is the root of the sleep problem?

    • One thing that Dr. Sears says that I totally agree with about Arora, is the desire or need to sleep next to someone, actually can be an awakening stimulant. Arora want to be rocked to sleep but if she is not already mostly asleep the rocking will wake her right up.
