Hey all ya mothers!
Ive got a two year old little man and hes very active and isn’t much of a sleeper. I’ve being trying to get him to go to bed by himself, and he was fine when he was sleeping in a cot….but now that he can climb out of it I have to be there stroking his head and stuff until he’s COMPLETELY asleep I mean for a really long time, otherwise he runs out of the bedroom and refuses to go to bed.
I have no clue how to stop this. Nothing seems to work!
Any advice gals?
wow this is a hard one my kids did the same with 2 i just let them run around there room out of bed till they dropped n i would just pick them up n put them to bed now i would say read him a book n tell him after your done with the book its sleepy time.rub his head as you read the book it might work n if it dont just keep up what you were doing he might not be ready for bed by himself yet good luck.
Thanks for the reply!
I ended up just having to take away his midday sleep, so we’re in the process of completing changing his routine, because I was reading to him, and stroking his head, and talking and singing to him, but I just figured he wasn’t tired enough after having a midday sleep!
