Our nightly routine is- supper, play for a little while, bath, and then bed by 10 and I let him watch one or two cartoons. Sometimes he falls asleep with the TV on but most of the time he doesn't until I turn the Rev off. He sleeps in my bed and I have to lay down with him! He has a bed in my room right beside my bed but won't sleep in it. Sometimes I put him in his own bed when he falls asleep but he ends up in the bed with me.
What I want is to put him to bed by himself whether its in my bed or his own and I come back to the living room while he goes to sleep. Mainly, BC I'm about to have a new baby and I may not be able to lay down with him every night.
I have been told to just put him in bed, shu the door and let him very himself to sleep. He won't do that. I've tried and he just screams and keeps getting up forever. I can't handle him being under thay much stress!
