  • No activity of other people, no electric lights on ... Candlelight ... rocking chair ... dressed warmly ( you cannot go to sleep until your feet are warm) ... hush and soft singing & no electronic music or noise / TV ... being cuddled ... warm honey milk (calcium helps the brain feel like it's got the nourishment it needs to relax and stop seeking)

    Gently reading a favorite book by candlelight, cuddled warm in mama's lap in a rocking chair after a drink of warm milk or tea ...

    Assuming the 3-yr-old's rhythm is such that they NEED to be asleep right now ...

    Check out Audrey McAllen's book "Sleep". She offers insight into what's going on with sleep, how to overcome difficulty falling asleep, and difficulties with waking up again during the night (it is different if the waking happens an hour after going to sleep or a number of hours later ... ) Her information is great for mothers, and helpful for adult sleep patterns, too.

  • Nope, my boys have been in bed since 8, my 5 month old however was WAY awake back at midnight. I'm only up cause my husband just came home from work (it's just after 2 here right now), lol, checking a few things before I head to bed.

  • And ... enjoy your baby!
    Mine are grown, and my most precious memories are of quiet one-on-one times with them. They love us so devotedly, and our slightest attention to them fills them with joy and elation.

    What's not to like about that !
