My 2yo son is going through a very clingy stage, where i have to be with him when he falls asleep and if he wakes up without me, he either screams like he is having a nightmare, or he climbs out of bed and will go to where i am - i am also the only one who can put him to bed. Does anyone have any ideas thet will help me get him settled and happily sleeping in his own bed without me?

I had this with both my kids i use to put them to bed wait till they fell asleep then went to bed if they woke up i would take them back put them straght back into bed, don't get carried away with cuddles, i know it sounds frustrating but you have to be tough don't get sucked in by the feel sorry for me cries or you will never get them in their own bed. Also i started telling them my room was adults room and they couldn't sleep with me anymore they had to be big kids now, leave the light on if its easier.
