From day one I told my husband that we should never let our son in our bed or he will never sleep in his own. Well for the first two years everything with the bed time routine was great. Bath, brush teeth, read a book, bed at 9pm. It wasn't until baby # 2 came along that this became an issue. While in the hospital after giving birth to my second son dad was in charge of bed time. He started staying in his room til he fell asleep. When I can home from the hospital my son only requested his father to put him to bed. I was fine with this being so preoccupied with my newborn anyway. We are now 8 months later and now my husband is tired of sitting in his room all night. So by 10:30 he gives up and goes to bed. well... shortly after my son sneaks into bed with him and my husband allows it. He is blaming me for giving him a nap each day and thinks That he has out grown this napping stage. He needs his nap everyday or he is impossible to deal with...cranky. Any suggestions? How do I get dad on board and boy in his bed at a reasonable time?
