My 1 yr old was great at bedtime now all of a sudden he doesn't go he's lying there wide eyed awake. I just started back to work and he's been going to a sitter 3 days a week could this be why or how do I know if he just needs a later bedtime. Please any advice will help!!!!!

Is he napping late in the day? Also, is he not napping enough? An overtired child often will have a hard time falling asleep. So start by evaluated the hours of daytime sleep he is getting and then go from there. If you can set up and stick to a solid bedtime routine; quiet play, bath, books and snuggles and off to bed he may transition better for you.
