Really tired...

Literally and figuratively.

2 year 8 month old is refusing to go to sleep in his own bed at night. For the past two weeks he HAS to fall asleep with dh in our bed.

However nap time I can get him to take a nap in his own bed with little issues

Argh!

Is he scared of the dark? I had one who would sleep in his room as long as it was light out but would lose his mind if he was alone in the dark. We finally found a nightlife bright enough and he would sleep at night. I have no idea how he could sleep with it on there are dimmer search lights but it worked. Also music/ books on tape were great too. We had the CD player out of reach so he could hear it but not touch.

Why yes that is exactly what we did, we got him a bright nightlife and it worked great! We found some raves and took him clubbing ,it helped immensely! Such amazing parenting advice from gangster!!!

Re: Really tired...

We ended up getting the pillow pet night light thing for dd when she did this. It blasts stars in the shape of an animal on the ceiling. She would fall asleep watching the colors change.

It's not lights. Or noise. He shares a room with dd so its not company either.

Their closet light is on, then there's a lamp on dds dresser. Plus the radios on. They also have pillow per night lights, flashlights, etc

It's the fact that he just doesn't fall asleep! He will toss and turn in our bed and talk for about 15 minutes and then fall asleep.

We have put dd in the bonus room while ds was falling asleep to see if its the company that keeps him up. Then put her in once he falls asleep. Which was working awesome up until a few weeks ago. Now he'll scream and say "lay in daddy's bed".

Which means dh and I can't sit and relax at night with each other.

In that situation I would put dd in the bonus room so she doesn't have to listen to ds yell for dad and let ds fall asleep in his bedroom. If you are sick or genuinely scared I will do everything I can to help but that sounds like he just prefers to sleep with dad. Which you can understand because you do too. . After two weeks it sounds like it has become a habit. The longer it goes the harder it will be for him to fall asleep without dh.
