I screwed up! I was very attached to my son as a baby and the only was he could sleep was to fall asleep with me holding him. When he got older I would let him fall asleep with me on the couch. Now he is 4 years old and he does not want to fall asleep without someone in his room with him. We have a normal bedtime routine: potty, wash face, brush teeth, read a book, but when it comes time to tuck him in he freaks out. My husband usually sits in the rocking chair in his room and waits for him to fall asleep. If my husband tries to leave the room my son starts throwing a fit-kicking and screaming. I am afraid he is going to wake up our 1 year old who is sleeping in her crib next to his room. Once he falls asleep my husband can leave the room and my son sleeps in his bed the whole night (occasional potty trip aside).
Does anyone have a successful method for getting him to fall asleep without one of us on there with him?
