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?
