My son Damian....who will be two in just a few weeks....has recently started to wake during the night and walk down to our bedroom....he's always loved his sleep but over the last few months has been very restless.
We bought him a night light because we thought it might be night terrors etc but its made no difference, if anything it just gives him a better light to be able to see to get up.
He walks down to our bedroom and i take him straight back to his bed and he usually goes back to sleep but some nights he wont go back at all. I'm trying sooooo hard not to let him sleep in our bed because i'v heard to many stories of people having trouble with their little ones sleeping in their bed and trying to get them out is almost immpossible.
He also wakes at around 5am but is still really tired....we've darkened the room out so the sun doesn't shine in but he still gets up early...weird thing is.....he comes downstairs and has his breakfast and bottle and then falls asleep in front of the tv an hour later...How do i get him into a better sleep pattern where he sleeps through the night and morning and only need 1 nap during the day instead of this strange cat nap in the mornings ????????
