At 14 months, children need an average of 11.25 hours of sleep at night and 2.25 to 2.5 hours of naps twice a day. In-Home personalised consultation advises parents to take a nap until their child is between 15 and 18 months old.
Please talk to your doctor about creating a nutrition plan for your child. Discuss how much you eat during the day and how long you can walk at night without eating. This information is essential in making plans that align with your answers for the night.
At 14 months, he definitely has the ability to put a pacifier back into his own mouth and just needs a little practice. To do this, when he wakes up, start pointing at the pacifier on your bed. If on a regular bed, you can even put a small basket with a pacifier in the corner of the bed.
You have to point it out first and see if he understands. If he whines to pick it up, you can take it in his hand and put it in his mouth. After all, you have to instruct him to do everything himself.
In order for him to really calm down, your goal is to stop changing his pacifier. Otherwise, it would be a new crutch for sleep: Mom and Dad would find a pacifier instead of me and put it back in their mouths.
During this step, it is important to put him to sleep drowsy but awake. Oftentimes, parents let their babies sleep too soundly only to find that their child is crying for them because they simply don't understand how to fall asleep unaided.
