Getting 2.5 year old to bed.

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

I am having trouble getting my 2.5 year old to bed. He falls asleep fairly quickly, but then seems to awaken what seems like every 30 minutes. I have to come back up, wait with him until he sleeps again, and I am finding it so stressful running up and down the stairs, sitting for 30 minutes, sometimes more with a child that would prefer to be sitting downstairs with me. Sometimes he comes down to look for me. I need help please. This crazy nightly pattern is driving me up the wall.

Is he waking up because he's hungry or would you say this is just habit forming? Do you have white noise/music on for him? Is he simply going to bed too early?
My son is off and on a good sleeper...some nights he's right to bed...doesn't say a peep. Other nights he can be a screaming demon, that doesn't want to rest! Hang in there hun, and if all else fails, chat with your doctor. You need your sanity.
