Update on sleep issues...

I've tried everything that was recommended to me to help Primo sleep.

Essential oils are dispersed in his room overnight. He takes epsom salt baths, has a special light and cuddle animal, uses a weighted blanket, takes supplements, there is a sunshine clock on a timer in his room. Our bedtime routine has stayed on schedule every night.

The results are that he is (for the most part) getting up only once a night to use the bathroom. He is also getting up at 6:30 or 7, instead of 5:30 AM!

There has been progress, thank you for all your suggestions!


  1. Hve you had any respite placements since the adoption?

    1. No we haven't the lack of sleep and running around to all of Primo's therapies etc. has lead us to close our home.
