I'm hoping someone can help me as I haven't had a full 8 hr sleep in over a year. My son is 16 months and he doesn't sleep through the night and I feel I have tried everything. I've tried nightlight, no nightlight; blanket, no blanket; change him, don't change him; let him cry it out (which was a nightmare and he never stopped crying and it made me feel like a horrible mother), let him co-sleep with me and my husband. It's like he has restless leg syndrome. He kicks us allllll night and headbutts us and rolls and rolls and sits up and throws himself on one of us so no one sleeps. I've even slept with him on an air mattress and couch and nothing works. I have a routine with him already--7:30 brush teeth, 8:00 nighttime bath, 8:30 bottle and sleep. I just don't know what to do at this point because he will only sleep 4-6 hours during the night.
