We break out the margaritas!
Ok, just kidding. We've had really good sleepers until recently. The 3 yo gets up about once a night, if not more, crying. She always goes for hubby though
. Last Fri I experimented and, in warming up her milk for the night (she loves warm milk before bed) I added a bag of chamomile tea. Heated the whole thing for a minute, squeezed out the bag and she loved the taste. Then slept for 13 HOURS!! The next night we did the same and got 12 hours. 3rd night same. 4th night I skipped it and she was up. I don't know if it made a huge difference or if her little body was too tired and needed the sleep. I'm going back to it tonight to see if it helps.
FYI, I used to do this to the baby bottles when they were 6 months+ before bed. It helped to calm them and going to sleep was much easier.
