22 month old taking hours to fall asleep

My 22 month old goes to bed at 7pm every night and we have a consistent routine but he is taking anywhere between 2-4.5hours to fall asleep. I don’t know what else to do, I’ve tried everything. We’ve had a consistent routine since he was 5 months old. He usually naps 2 hours during the day from 12-2pm. Should I cut down his afternoon nap?


  • Hi! I hope your issue has gotten better…we actually dealt with something really similar when ours was around the same age. Except, he would fall asleep for two hours then wake up and be up for hours! It lasted a few weeks then stopped. Nothing else in his routine had charged so I figured it was the dreaded 2 year sleep regression. Could be what you’re experiencing too!
