My son is 20 months and about a month ago he started his big boy bed which was working out GREAT for the first 2 weeks. One night he ended up in my bed when I wasn't even awake, the next morning I found him next to me. Then after that night he would lay with me periodically, but not every night maybe just in the morning right when he was waking up and I wa still a little sleepy. But now my son has been waking up anywhere from 3-4 hours a night throwing tantrums and refuses to be in his bed. He screams if we walk into his room when I try to put him back to sleep. He has almost kicked a hole in his door. He even threw such a huge tantrum he tripped in got a bloody nose on my bed frame! It seems so tramautizing for the both of us. I don't even know what to do anymore! I try to put him back in his bed and read a couple books, pat his back, give him a little water, try and have him relax, but the second I move to leave his room or if he rolls over he instantly wakes up and starts screaming again. I just don't know what to do anymore. I am getting no sleep and these tantrums are wearing down my son and I. Any help?
