Hi everyone... yes what a daunting statement but true... My baby of 5 children has just turned 4 and still wants to sleep in my bed.. I have been one of those mums that use to tell all her friends to put their babies in their own beds as soon as possible and teach them to sleep alone.. and now I swallow my own words as its easier said than done.. my other four children have been sleeping in their own beds or cots when they were little but not baby boy.. ahh.. first I have to tell you that while I was pregnant he was diagnosed with Hydronephrosis a kidney condition and have had 2 operations since birth.. it was a very scary experience and Ive always kept him close... he has been through a lot and is my last child... but still no excuse.. Ive tried to lie down with him in his bed till he sleeps and also used a night light but still he would cry to a point where he is sobbing and crying non stop...its hard for both him and me... any advise?? And this from a mum who thought she knew the answer... I bow my head and admit... never to late to learn something new...

Thank you Jenny...
Very encouraging and helps to know its not all bad... Just last night I saw an add on T.V about a new LED night light teddy that makes a beautiful light and kids can sleep with it... I am so going to buy it for him and see if it helps... I like the idea of getting another sibling to try and lay down with him.. he is very close to his 13 year old big sis... xx hugs and enjoy your day... what is left of it anyway.. :)
