Meet Ralph! Ralph is 3 and half! He was a great 11 hour sleeper when he was a baby right up just before his 3rd birthday.
Then, a little holiday away everything changed. Ralph liked to have a story read to him to fall asleep, he then wanted to sleep with Mummy and Daddy. On return home after a week away bedtimes became harder, he started refusing to put pyjamas on and taking up to an hour to fall asleep. He always found an excuse not to sleep, teddy fell out of bed, and his covers fell off, another story and then another then another then another!
Ralph was full of questions as well! He liked to know things especially if he was going to nursery the next day and who will be there! His parents tried to leave the room but it never happened easily or without a battle.
Then Ralph started to wake in the night and not go back to his bed unless Mummy or Daddy came with him. 4.30am became a favourite for Ralph to start the day!
