But A Late-Night Visitor ( Momimhar posted on September 1st, 2013 )

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.

  3. Do not be so hard on yourself, they grow up so quickly. Try to enjoy that extra cuddle time, it will not be there long.

  4. We had the same problem and the only way is putting your foot down and telling your little one that they need to go to sleep and leaving even if they cry a couple of times. This is difficult but it’s also good for them to be able to fall asleep on their own. Good luck!

    My youngest is at that stage right now too sis. I remember my eldest was also like this when he was same age as his little bro, when he get to crawl to our bed in the early morning and sleep, I will carry him back to his bed and if he does it again in a couple of hours, I have to do it again. It’s a struggle but they soon will get the idea that they have their own bed and they will get tired of it.

  6. I can’t as I am on the same page with you! LOL! And, I can’t afford to see and hear my baby cries that’s why I stayed and sleep with him sometimes. 🙂

  7. Awwww, she is so sweet mare but you are right sometimes or most of the times we have things to do too. At our home, it’s my husband that tells the story so I put/tuck them in bed and hubby finishes it with a story. Maybe your hubby can do that too, am sure she”ll appreciates it.

      Hi Mare, hubby reads her bedtime stories. But what’s funny is that, he falls asleep sometimes.
      He sleeps early, too. May edad na kasi. 🙂 Toink!

  8. I would say not to worry about it and just enjoy the moment. I don’t have problems with my kids sleeping at night as they are pretty good sleeper. I guess she is just at the stage where she is longing for her mommy. These are precious times. Hope she can go to sleep well without having your by her side soon! But in the meantime, enjoy it. 🙂

    I am glad my daughter is already big. I do not think I can handle no sleep at night.
