My son will be 2 next month and he still doesn't sleep through the night. It usually takes about 2 hours to get him to go to sleep, then he wakes up 1-3 times a night, getting up for good any time between 4 and 8am.
He takes a 2 hour nap during the day, usually anytime between 12pm and 3pm, I never let him sleep past 4pm.
I've tried everything. Bath, books, singing, watching movies, rocking him, skipping nap time, keeping him super busy throughout the day etc.
He's never slept well since he was born.. I really don't know what to do. I've tried to be firm and just keep putting him back in his bed over and over until he falls asleep. This usually takes about 20 times and we both end up crying.
I cant let him cry it out because he's no longer in a crib (climbs out.)
If anyone has any advice for me I would appreciate it! I'm a single mom and a full time student, I cant go on for years and years with no sleep!
