My 2 1/2 year old son will not sleep anymore. He absolutely REFUSES to sleep day or night. He will not nap during the day no matter how much I try to wear him out or how much sugar I restrict. He's up at ALL hours of the night and he gets into EVERYTHING. Right now it is 4AM and i've just put him back down for the 8th time tonight. I know he will be back up in 45 minutes and probably be up for the rest of the day. He's up every 30 minutes to an hour tops every single night. This has been going on for about a month and i'm at wits end. He won't let me or his baby brother get any rest. He's gotten so destructive and cranky and downright mean that we don't know what to do anymore. I've tried warm baths, storytime, going to bed at the same time, waking up at the same time, no tv, no noise, no sugar etc. I have to sleep on the sofa at night now so that i can catch him before he can start tearing up the house. I'm to the point I may have to quit my job because I haven't slept since this started a month ago and I just cant function anymore.Answer Question
