We just transitioned my three year old son to a toddler bed a few weeks ago, and he just doesn't seem to be getting better at falling asleep. It is still taking two to three hours of screaming and tantrums and going my husband and I going in an out of his room to get him to go to sleep. We will stay with him and rub his back until he falls asleep when he is laying quietly in his bed, but most nights he won't cooperate and so we have to leave him to cry and scream for periods of time and check on him periodically to try to calm him down and get him to sleep. He was a much better sleeper when he was in his crib, and we are exhausted. I start work at 430 AM most days, and my husband and I both work full-time, so we need some solutions to make this work better for all of us. Please help!
