Am I giving in by hiring a night nurse or sleep specialist for my 1.5 year old who won’t sleep?

I have a 1.5 year old that will not sleep through the night and is having so much difficulty falling asleep… other mamas, would you suggest working with a night nurse or sleep specialist? I’m really tired…

You are not alone!!! Have you tried not putting him down for a nap during the day? In my experience, that’s been one of the most helpful things for getting my baby to stay asleep through the night. 0 Likes

Hi! Have you heard of the blog takingcarababies? She also has an Instagram :) I love love love her advice–it helped so much with my little one! Hang in there, mama. If you need to hire a sleep specialist, do it. Listen to your gut. 0 Likes

Oh wow really, have you tried to just sleep train or stop all stacks at 6pm.. Did you set the bed time for 7pm or earlier?? A lot of times that's what's needs. Or you can try some smooth music or music that the baby likes. 0 Likes

I hear you on being tied. Our daughter has twins that just turned one in January. M daughter and son-in-law work outside the home. At first my daughter's in laws plus myself and husband would help out. Now they sleep throughout the night, but it took a while. Getting help is not a sign of weakness but strength and wisdom. Have you tried making sure that your baby is well fed at night, bathed and toilette 0 Likes

Night nurse are great !
My suggestions are regular time and routine at night ( bath, dinner, book and bed).
