Coercive measures, revisited.
The toddler still doesn’t sleep well. We have tried just about everything we can think of to get him to sleep. Since he was born, he has only slept through the night on a handful of nights. Most nights have been like tonight, when he went to sleep around 7 p.m., slept till 9:00, and has been up and down since then, every 45 minutes or so.
Older son eventually started sleeping well, around 2 and a half. So, there’s an end in sight, probably. But it seems very far off.
The toddler loves music. Right he is “singing” along with, and dancing to, a fridge-magnet-alphabet toy, sort of like this one. Whenever the ABC song ends he asks for “more,” both with his caveman “ma, ma” grunting, and with his sign language. Did you know that it’s common to teach babies sign language now, so they can communicate better before they can talk? And “more” is probably the favorite sign of babies….
