Re: My 2.5 year old is wandering off by himself to fall asleep and it's very weird
DD2 started doing this around 2.5yo too. When she was tired she would just go lay on the couch, pull a blanket over her, and within a minute or two she was out. She was just becoming more independent. Every couple of days she would want to be cuddled to sleep, but the days stretched out longer and longer. Now (she's 3.5) she only wants to cuddle to sleep if she's not feeling well.
