Hi. My 19th month old son has just started to refuse to go to bed of a night time. Before this we had a great routine of bottle, cuddle with his blanket in his room and then into Bed awake. He has never slept through the night usually wakes once and has a bottle and straight back to bed. But this last week he has had his bottle no dramas but as soon as i put him into his cot he just screams. I have left him crying for an hour after going in every 5 mins but he ends up so upset and makes himself sick. So he is falling asleep on my lap in front of the Tv and then i put him into bed asleep. He is also waking up now about 3 times a night. I know i am getting into a bad habbit of him falling to sleep on me and really don't want to continue doing this but i have run out of ideas of getting him into bed awake. I have tried reading him a book, letting him cry, sitting next to his cot, patting him. If anyone has any ideas pls HELP. I need sleep and so does he!!!!
