I can't seem to get my child to go to bed, he was LOVING his new big boy bed and never got out of bed. Then he learned to open the door and since then he will get out of bed 50 times before he falls asleep. sometimes it takes 30 mins and sometimes it takes 2 hrs and i do not want to deal with this til 10pm every night :/

My son co-sleep but I used to be a nanny and here is the key, when he comes out give him 0 attention, I mean not even a sigh, walk him back into his room put him in bed and shut the door, do not talk do nit make it fun! As soon as he learns that he gets nothing from this little interaction he will quit it and fall asleep!
