Re: Sleep Issues

Our kids have gone through the needing to be touching someone to sleep phase, and it's frustrating, but they do get through it! I would try laying down with him and then sneaking away once he is asleep. He might wake up quickly at first, but after a while should sleep longer and longer stretches as he gets used to sleeping alone.

I also second sticking a firm pillow or something next to him (maybe a rolled up blanket?) to simulate you still being there. Sometimes my daughter just wanted something to lean up against. Now that she is a bit older she sleeps squished up next to the wall because she likes that support.

It is hard, but it won't last forever, just work at it slowly.
