Toddler chronic insomnia (desperate parents)
Our 17 month old has had insomnia for the last five months. It began with just 1.5h a night but now is up for 2-3 hours sometimes multiple times a night. She is solidly on one nap, usually 1.5h, no large life changes. Sleep Study shows mild sleep apnea but ENT found no anatomical abnormalities. We tried melantonin and it kept her UP the entire night. She is sleep trained and goes to sleep independently and peacefully. It isnt teething because issue is persistant and medicine doesnt make a difference. She is night weaned and we don't actively do anything to help her fall back alseep (nor will she let us. She no longer likes to be bounced or picked up). Mostly she is just tossing and turning until she finally sleeps again.
We paid for two sleep consultants both of whom said we are doing all the right things. We are distraught and tired and just want to help her. It is concerning that it is getting worse as we run out of medical paths.
Has anyone experienced this with their child? What else can we do to help her???
