  • Our son used to wake up in the middle of the night and come to our room. We would just take him back and tell him that we would be back to check on him. Took about a week, but he got used to staying asleep. Also, in the morning he would ask us if we had checked on him. We said, "Yes, we checked on you. You were asleep." Does he have a night light? Maybe a small flashlight would work better, or those glow in the dark stickers. My daughter had a set of stars.
