Hey, I have a 2 year old who will be 3 in August.. She will only sleep in her bed for half the night! She wakes up at 2 or 4. As soon as she see's me or feels me she goes right back to sleep! I have found that if I wear her out in the yard playing she will sleep all night! I try to keep her up till atleast 9:00 or 9:30. That way she will sleep till 6. I think it's a trying game we all have to come to grips with.. We don't or we won't get any sleep till there 10. I hope this helps. Thanks, Nancy

Hi there! I am very fortunate to have two boys who enjoy their sleep at night time, but you mention that your son shared a room with you until 3 months ago? Have you maybe tried giving him your blanket from your bed...or something that smells like mommy that might help him smell you while he is sleeping giving him the illusion that you are there? If he has never really slept the night then is it at specific times he is waking?

hey samantha my name is lea. I two have a two year old son we have bad nights. We found that you have to just take it one night at a time. when luke has bad nights we start by gettinga him a drink of milk walk him to his room and let him pick out a book if it small two books after reading them in to bed we go when we frist started it was easy but we now have nights where we are putting him in to bed 3 to 4 times a night but we try to not break this routine. only if he is sick do we stay longer. my suggestion is find something you two or three can enjoy quiet time together before bed! and then keep enforcing bed time after your time together and in my experience in time something should give just be patient i hope this helps you! Boys Hey
