If you have followed our journey you know the struggles we’ve had with getting Courtney to fall asleep at night. I worked hard at sticking to a routine, I’ve tried weighted blankets, Lycra, sound machines, music, rocking, cuddling, even car rides…everything! When it was really bad (back when she was napping), it took over 2 hours. Once we took naps away, I was able to get it down to an hour. Once School and therapy started I would have the occasional half hour. Recently, Courtney has been hard to even get her in her room at bedtime. To avoid any aggressive behaviors I gave in a few times and let her lay on the couch but I would try again the next night. Well, For 4 days in a row now, we’ve let Courtney lay on the couch and she has fallen asleep within 20 minutes! Once asleep, we bring her to her bed. We will see how long this lasts, but if that’s what it takes to get her to fall asleep, then that’s what we will do.
