Okay so my son s 15 months old and about a month and a half ago he got really badly sick,I bent the rules and let him sleep in the bed with me and my hubby,so I could pat his back and rub his chest because he had a really bad cough and doing this helped it!
He got over this flu in about 1 week,so we went back to the usual routine dinner,bath,quiet play for about 1 and a half hour then bed.He was okay with that he slept fine and went to sleep quickly,it was back to normal.
My son was always a good sleeper from about 7 months old he slept by himself in his own room (when he was littler he slep in his own bassinet near our bed.
But recently when we put him to bed he crys and crys,we will try rocking him to sleep but then when we out him in his crib after about 20 minute he will wake up a scream the house down,the only thing that stops him is if we take him into our bed and then he will eventually calm down and go to sleep but if we out him back in his crib he does it all over again.
I've tried CIO,it didn't work he would scream to the point where he is gasping for air going bright red in the face,and sometimes even gags like he is going to vomit.He screams mommy and it kills me even if I power through he will then climb out of his crib and come out of the room.
I'm scared he is going to work him self up so much and make himself really ill or even worse hurt himself climbing out of the crib.Im all out of ideas and I don't know what to do and I need my son back in his bed safe and sound like he yous to quickly because I am 3 mo ths pregnant and in 6 months time there is going to be another new born in my room that I will need to get up to in the night etc.
I'm worried that if this continues he will be in my bed forever and between the newborn and him I won't get a look in with my husband.We are both frustrated and need answers.
