He has never had a problem sleeping in his room. About a week ago he started crying when we put hime to bed and when we left the room he would start to scream and cry louder and harder. Then he would fall asleep and wake up and do the same thing. We tried sitting next to the bed and calming him but it doesn't help, when we leave the room he screams and cries louder. He has been getting out of his bed and going to the couch and sleeping in the middle of the night. When we catch him we take him back to bed but the fitting ensues. Any ideas of how to stop this? Is he just testing us or is something really wrong. How long should he be allowed to cry before we go in and check on him? Any suggestions would be sooooo greatly appreciated.
