My son is 2 and a half he has never been a good sleeper !!!! I have cut out his nap through the day and still he gets up between 11pm & 12.30am, it's as if he can't get comfortable he is in a toddler bed so don't know if I should try a single bed because when he.gets into our bed he goes to sleep straight away. Please help !!!!

I think maybe he sleeps straight away in your bed because you are in there. My son started to get very attached to me when he was 2 years old and refused to sleep in his bedroom all night. I tried laying with him for hours in his bed, reading book after to book and simply closing his door and letting him cry (which didn't last even one night because I couldn't stand to hear it). My partner and myself were exhausted and strung out trying to keep him in there and then one day I was browsing the book store and I found a book written by "Super nanny"- Jo Frost!! One word- LIFE SAVER!! She also has youtube videos depicting certain situations and how to handle them. Her bedtime routine and sleeping technique was the best thing I've ever used. Be warned that it is very hard and very stressful, but if you decide to use the technique and stick with it, you will not be disappointed. I owe my sanity to her haha. Good luck :)
