My Boys are 2 next week and I recently changed them to their toddler beds. They never were great sleepers but lately were getting 0 hs of sleep it feels like. They wake up mulitple times during the night and come to our bed and want to sleep there and have a bottle (sippy cup with milk). It's getting worse and worse and because I'm pregnant I guess I have givin in alot and now it's getting out of hand. My nights usually now are either on the couch with one or both of them or I'm in the bed with each on one side and my husband goes for the couch. It's not rest at all. They need me next to them so they can fall asleep.
I really want to change this and not sure how.. I am from now on not giving any milk "at night" anymore and will try water, but should I just leave them in their room crying to soothe theirselves? They have a special Blankie and Paci they still use and NEED for bed, but I feel like I can't close the door and just let them cry.. or should I? If I go in, I have to lay in their beds till they fall asleep and then it starts over again in an hour or two..
Please help and would appreciate any advice!!
