While I love waking up to him, I have to admit that it is seriously doing my back in sharing a single bed each night.
Some nights he won't come and get me until 5.30-6am, others (like last night) he will come in around midnight/1am.
I have asked him why and he says he doesn't want to sleep alone and that he gets scared. I have tried teddy bears, night lights etc. None of it works. He asks why he sleeps alone when mummy doesn't (I have a partner), and I have no idea how to answer that!!
I am not the sort of parent where tough luck rules, preferring to be sensitive to his feelings (which I believe to be genuine and legitimate), but am a bit lost on this one.
Grateful for advice?
