My son Brady, who is 2, still doesn't sleep through the night. We made the mistake of letting Brady sleep with us when he was younger because we breast-fed and it was easier (for me) to have him right beside me. Now he no longer breast-feeds and just uses his binkie and rubs our ear to fall asleep. Brady goes down very easily as long as we are there for him to play with our ears, but if his binkie falls out of his mouth or he thinks I left the bed, he starts crying and wakes up until I lay back down with him. How do I solve this? What can I do? I eventually want him to sleep in his own bed, but the thought of even trying scares me. In school, he goes down for his nap fine, without anyone touching him or without him playing with their ears, as long as he has them in his sights, but even there, he wakes up from nap time crying, which wakes up the other children. Anyone have any advice for me??
