My son has had a routine since the day he was home from the hospital for bed time. Bath, bottle, bed! We have NEVER had an issue with putting him to bed and him going to sleep. Just recently he has now refused to go to bed on his own. Just last night was the worst one we ever experienced. We now do Bath, book, prayer, bed! We did the normal routine and tried to kiss him good night and he just kept saying no to us. So we put him in his bed kissed his forehead and said we will see you in the morning night night. Well that is when he proceeded to climb out of his crib in screaming terror and latched on my husbands leg and cried daddy no daddy no. I am trying to find a reason for this weird behavior as to why we spent two hours trying to get him to calm down and go to sleep. It finally ended with me rubbing his back till he was almost in a deep sleep and me leaving the room. He was so tired at that point he just cried for about 5-10 minutes and then passed out. We never had any issues what so ever like this and am totally thrown for a loop. All the reading I have done keeps saying have a routine and stick to it. We have had a routine for 2 years and never had an issue and now he wants no part of the routine. Would you suggest a big boys bed so he doesn't kill himself doing the ninja move to fall out of his crib or any other suggestions????!!!!! Please I will take it all!!! :) Thank you!!
