Need some sleep advice for a 2 year old

I cannot get my 2 year old to stick to a sleep schedule at all. He also refuses to sleep in his bed. I've tried everything. I can't let him just scream it out in his room since my oldest has epilepsy (she has a strict sleep schedule). If I do get him to sleep in his room he ends up waking in the middle of the night screaming hysterically. Does anyone have advice??

I asked my sons pediatrician advice and she just looked at me like I was stupid. Hopefully you get some good advice. Believe me I know how you feel..We are exhausted too since my husband and I share a bed with our son and he stays up until midnight or 1 am some nights. So far no one has given me any advice so I'm still not sure what to do.

I'm kind of happy to see this post . I'm having serious issues with my 22 month old sleeping as well. Out of nowhere she just won't sleep. We get mabey 5+ hours a night with an hour nap during the day. My husband and I are exhausted. I think we may try seeing her pediatrician about it

My son will sleep wherever my husband and I sleep. He always wants to sleep with us. I've been trying to break him of that too. He still naps and he usually sleeps 9-10 hours at night and usually has a 2 hr nap during the day. I've tried making his naps shorter and he still won't go to sleep at a decent hour

I have tried letting him cry it out in his crib. We have a routine and he will get a bath and brush his teeth and have a story read to him. After that he just walks right out of his room. And if we put him back in there he cries and screams. Funny thing is when he was 6 mo old he would go to bed at 9 pm with no fuss. Then all of the sudden at 9 mo he would wake up crying and screaming.

Is there somewhere in the house that your 2 year old will sleep?

How much sleep does he get in a 24 hour period?

Does he nap?

What kind of bedtime routines have your tried?
