Evening all! I am sitting here in our lounge with my 4yr old son, Leo, snuggled up in between us. He has just crept downstairs, wide awake and happy as anything, just as if it is time to get up. The thing is, he has not yet been to sleep despite going to bed at 7.30 this evening straight after his bath.
This is now a regular occurrence, in fact it is unusual if it does not happen. He does not sleep in the day at all and gets up between 6 and 7 am every morning. He also creeps into our bed every night at around 4am, which is a really annoying habit that we have been trying to break, not only because it disrupts our sleep but also I feel for our eldest son who is 6, as I am sure he feels pushed out when he comes into our room in the morning and sees Leo snuggled up between us.
The thing is, Leo was always a good sleeper until he started taking Singulair a couple of years ago. His behaviour and sleep patterns became so poor when taking it that the consultant took him off it and within a fortnight he was back to his propert sleeping patterns and lovely, placid nature again. It was clearly the medication that made him change. He has now been taking Seretide for several months and gradually the sleep disturbance pattern has resurfaced. I am sure it is no coincidence and just wondered if anyone has had this kind of problem with their child on Seretide?
A change in his behaviour always very noticeable when he is on a course of prednisolone but I know that is to be expected and luckily he hasn't had any for a few months now.
I just wish he could get to sleep at a reasonable time, bless him. He is sitting here now looking so adorable and cuddly but I feel sorry for him as I just feel it can't be any good for him to have so little sleep every night!
