It seems like my son has esp when ever I cross the threshold of his bed room! He can be in a dead sleep and wake up as soon as we get in there! lets just say his new bedroom is my room!!!

i think you should find something he will get attached to.my daughter has a "fluffy" which is a little pink rabbit my husband gave her for her first christmas(she STILL has it and shes 3 lol). that should help. or have him cuddle up to a stuffed animal of some kind.



then for about a week you will have to deal with no sleep and everytime he wakes up,rub his back or head to let him know youre there,and lay him back down.everytime.



good luck!

try music or a mobile, Fisher price has a cd, with soft music and no vocals. I still swaddle my 11 month old. She loves it. Get him nice and tight- let him listen to the music- if he has to--- let him cry! I know that hard, but sometimes that's the only way! I would say let him cry at least 15 minutes (starting out) before checking on him. Make sure he isn't hungry or wet/dirty before laying down. Try motrin, tylenol, teething tablets- it could be teething. get him a favorite small stuffed animal. It's hard to deal with, PRAY A LOT! Start a routine- read him a book, kiss and hug, wrap him up, lay him down. Hope that helps!

My daughter sleeps with a bunny blanket. she's had it ever since she was 2 months old. its something familiar that smells like mommy and daddy. Try just letting him cry it out a bit, i'm sure he'll go to sleep eventually. We also have one of those ladybugs that light up and show stars on the ceiling (you can get them at babies-r-us). maybe that will distract him enough to where he falls asleep. But if he's been sleeping in your room for a while its going to be very hard to get him used to his own bed. but maybe those things might help
