Is your toddler a happy napper? Does he or she sleeps well through the night without a problem? Is any of you dealing with late-night visitor? Do you mind it?
My little one is a happy napper and she sleeps through the night without problem. What I am dealing right now is that, she would not go to sleep if I am not snuggling with her. I tried leaving her in her room after reading a few bedtime stories and talks but she kept on getting me to go with her in her bedroom. I guess my patience is not enough because I give up easily. So we snuggle to be every night. And then, at dawn she wakes up and go to our bedroom and snuggles with me and daddy. It does not happen very often, though. I am kind of frustrated because I feel like I am not doing my best as a mommy.
I told my dear husband about these things and how I am trying to do tricks to be effective. Nothing seems to work because I end up staying in my darling daughter’s bedroom until she falls asleep. My husband told me not to worry about it. I will be missing these moments when our little one’s in her school age. I don’t want to miss any moment of her development and growing up especially on this stage of being a toddler. Lots of milestones and big developments are going on right now.
Spending time with my daughter at bedtime – reading bedtime stories, talking about the favorite part of the day, singing lullabies, etc. – is a joy to me. I am truly happy because her little way of expressing her ideas on something is amusing to me. But there are things I got to do before bed that requires time and I want her to go to sleep sooner. Oh well…
How about you? What’s your special advice on this matter? Highly appreciated.
