The begining of his tantrum

We haven't been having problems with Hariz sleeping patterns since he turns 1 year old. It's always been 9pm bedtime and woke up at 7.30am or 8.00am.  For that, my husband and I feel really grateful and we fully utilized  the extra free time we had every night to do all the works.

But lately, 1 week ago to be precise, his behave started to change so sudden. Putting him to bed has never been this hard. He will scream and cries like we are abusing him! Know what will stop him from doing that? If I sit next to his cot, holding his hands, singing, tepuk tepuk until he fell asleep. I don't mind doing this but the new baby is coming out soon! I can't have this behavior when the baby arrive!??!


I don't know how long this will last. We did the cry-it-out method again last night like we did to him when he was 10-11 months old. We let him cry his lungs out for merely 15 minutes and finally he fell asleep on his own. I never thought we're going to do this again at his time of age.

But at 3am, he woke up again screaming, reaching his arms out for me. I asked him ' kenapa hariz?? why are you crying??" because i think i heard him said 'tattooott" (takott). I think. I don't know. I was feeling drowsy. So I keep him in his cot and recite ayat qursi for a few times. Just when I thought he was already asleep, he woke up and cries again when I start climbing to my bed. In the end I just lift him and put him next to me. I think he fell asleep sometime at 4am.


I don't know if this happens because of the new baby coming or something new about his behavior. He's 1 year and 8 months old by the way. My only worry is if this behavior continues when the new baby arrives. We must find a solution before the day comes. Help?

my son pun pernah mcm ni. tak nak tidur dan menangis2, menjerit mcm kena dera. org lain pujuk langsung tak nak. nak mama sorang je. i pun tak larat sampai i join sekali menangis. 12am baru tido ingatkan dah ok. then 1am terjaga and start crying and screaming.

luckily, my mom ada dkt rumah i. my mom suruh buka baju then lapkan badan dgn air. 10 minutes later, my son minta air, then baru senyap. i breastfeed him then lena sampai pagi.

a week jugak nak bg mood tido ok. then now, dah kembali kepada rutin asal. i think, maybe perubahan bulan.

agaknya Hariz terasa pressure/treaten by the new baby.. hehe.. takot all the love and attention will transfer to her..

Insyaallah, you can give him some pep talk about how having a little sister and he becoming the big bro is cool/fun to help him cope. I'm sure he'll understand. ;)

Good luck!!!

i rasa dia nak bermanja2 ngan u puas2 sbb dia tau nanti he'll be a bro,kena selalu mengalah ngan adik :)

idina : i did try to reason with him. but somehow he will just buat2 tak dengar. i pon risau jugak n slalu call the nursery to know how is he. dah la tadi mengamuk time hantar kat nursery. hehe.. kesian dia.

isma : hehe.. i really wish i could but skarang mmg tak leh dah nak dukung dia or even letak dia atas riba. huhuhu

::Ida:: said...

hi ayin! really? hhehe.. mcm tak caya kan budak2 besar tu boleh pikir camtu? sebelum ni boleh je independent tapi lately ni nak duduk celah ketiak mama dia jaa.. sometimes mmg menguji kesabaran. tapi pikir2, kesian jugak sbb kecik lagi :)

try pasang surah al-baqarah dlm bilik.. sapu minyak wangi kat (dlm setitik dua..) kat belakang lutut.. siku.. tengkuk anak.. sambil selawat.. dan baca 3qul.

lepas tu amik garam kasarsegengam (genggam kecik je.. kang abis pula garam kat rumah tuh).. selawat.. takbir lempar luar tingkap.

::Ida:: said...

jiji : thanks for the advice! nnti i try. yg minyak wangi tu, any minyak wangi can ke?

and this happens kat umah my mom jugak.. think i will do both. kita ikhtiar kan :)
