My friend had to but a lock on the outside of her daughters door when she was 2 and a half because she would wake up in the night to hear the tv and go to the livingroom and her daughter would be sitting on the couch watching cartoons with a glass of water at 3am! They were worried about her going outside so they locked her door.

I have a son like this. His Dr. recommended giving him a later bed time and an as needed dose of melatonin. My son shares a room so I stagger bed times so only one child is trying to fall asleep at a time. So far, the combination of actions is working wonders.

Does he sleep alot during the day? If he does try to reduce the naps in the day and maybe he will sleep more, if not he could just be one of those children who dont need alot of sleep. I have two like that.

Hi Betty, I hade a child like yours! She just never slept more than a few hours at a time. All I can tell you is you have to take all the safety precautions you can think of if you ever intend to get any sleep. We woke up one night at 2am to find our 3yr old out in front of the house in the street.
