My daughter is at her wits end - and suffering from severe sleep deprivation.
5 year old sleeps very erratically (always has). Now at school, but may go 5pm to 5am, or more likely 6.30-7 until 5am max, today 3.30am. Plays a bit in his room then throws a wobbly until someone comes to play (or sometimes gets in parents bed). Big on tantrums generally, but clearly regularly exhausted, and extremely difficult as a result. A very active boy!
2 1/2 year old wakes several times during the night. Sometimes wants to be up, sometimes goes to parents bed.
Mum not really getting much sleep at all!
They do not believe in shutting the door and expecting the children to stay in their rooms (although 5YO plays for a while before waking Mum up).
Daughter has tried friends, health visitor, GP, internet; even sleep specialists - who say nothing can be done! I can't think that's true, but Daughter is permanently in a trance, at the end of her tether and not having any sort of life, although brilliant and endlessly patient with the children. She gets very ratty and upset when I mention lack of sleep.
Any super sleep tips?
