Up and down all night, a very common bedtime problem! The only successful way to eliminate this problem is to consistently bring your child back into their own bedroom with the minimum of eye contact and social interaction. If your child gets up 30 times you need to do this 30 times. However, if you feel that you can’t do this that night give in on the first go and then you are ready to go for the next night and be successful!
Remember to reinforce ALL appropriate behaviour. It’s easy to only react to the inappropriate behaviour as opposed to the lovely behaviours, which have gone before it. Your child will quickly come to realise what way to behave in order to get attention from Mum or Dad.
Implementing a successful feeding programme requires time, commitment and patience.
Don’t have a back up supply of nappies/diapers, using these intermittently during toilet training only confuses your child.
