I've started doing this with my son as he was playing up at sleep time as well .



When it's sleep time, and he stands up in his cot crying and not wanting to go to sleep, I ignore him and put Poo bear down on his pillow and stroke Poo bear and say good Poo bear, you sleeping, good Poo Bear (not giving any attention to my son, just stairing and stroking Poo Bears head), and with in seconds my son has his head down snuggling with Poo bear....... so cute I wanna eat him up.



Try it, let me know if it works for u too, the trick is not to look at your son, only the teddy bear

is he still in a crib or a toddler bed? My little girl will be 2 next month and for most of November and December she didn't want to sleep in her bed either..I would rock her to sleep so we didn't have too many tantrums. We changed her to a toddler bed right before Christmas and after 2 weeks of not so bad adjustment she was fine. I think it might be that they feel trapped after a certain oint and need to be able to get in and out of bed.
