Has anybody dealt with the two year sleep regression? Our older daughter never went through it, but our younger daughter definitely is. She went through a brutal regression at 18 months too, so I shouldn’t be surprised.
Both naps and nighttime sleep are affected. Her naps were usually 2.5-3 hours, and are now about 1-1.5 hours max. That’s not the big issue though. GOING to sleep is a nightmare for both naps and bedtime. She wants us to rock her or hold her hand for every nap and nighttime, and will cry, scream, and carry on resisting sleep if we don’t do that. Even us sitting in the chair in her room doesn’t appease her. She wants us to sit next to her crib and touch her. Bedtime is a hour and a half ordeal. Once she’s asleep, she’s generally sleeping okay.
She just got her last molars in last week, so that’s not it. She does have a lot of changes going on - a huge verbal spurt, and she’s also showing a lot of interest in potty training.
If anyone else went through this, did anything help? How long did it last?
