  • Next time she passes out at 5pm don't let her slee longer than an hour. Sounds like her das and nights are messed up. She probably needs an hour nap around noon each day. 2 hours if after she wakes she's still really crabby. Whoever her caregiver is during the day may have to "nap" with her to get her to do it.

  • It's going to take al lot of efford but I had a simular problem. The best thing is to avoid being TOO busy during the day.....

    My youngest is 3 now and her schedule looks like this now and ti works!

    1. waking up between 07.00 and 08.00 depends on how she slept, if earlier I just put her down again.
    2. washing up, dressing 08.00
    3. breakfast 08.30
    4. playing time, drawing, whatever .... or a little educational tv
    5. lunchtime 12.00
    6. time to let lunch sink in till 13.30
    7. napping time 13.30 till 15.30
    8. playing outside in yard, inside, a short walk to ducks
    9. dinner 17.30
    10. cuddling time with dad, big sister, playing
    11. getting ready for bed 19.30
    12. 20.00 llights out no matter what!

    This really worked for us ...... GOOD LUCK!!!

  • She always takes a nap between 12-1 but yesterday was a very off day. I tried waking her up when she fell asleep at 5pm but it just wasn't going to happen....
