My son is 26 months old and usually goes to bed on his own just fine. But for the past week he has been continually getting up out of his bed and room, sometimes even opening the curtains, and wont go to sleep unless myself or his dad fall asleep with him. We have done so for the past few nights as it gets so late we just want him to go to sleep. I realise this was probably the wrong thing to do, but we dont know what else to do!! Can anyone please help us with any ideas about how to get him to go off to sleep on his own again??? I would LOVE any advice we could get.
I guess an important point to mention is that we have had another baby who is 4 weeks old. Im not sure if thats a factor or not but thought it would be useful to mention.
