We lost our niece to SIDs almost four yrs ago. My fear and sadness were so great I waited to have my son. That day is still very vivid in my mind and still can't forgive myself for not being able to give proper CPR (having been trained may times) because of this my sons bed is in our room. Just about every night he gets up and ends-up in our bed with his feet by my face. I almost had it once, but then he started teething and I felt so bad for him I cuddle him to sleep. After that he got smart and he pulls at my heart strings. He cries Mama, Mami .... And looks at me with his big brown eyes he even grabs my hands so I can cradle him. I give in and kiss & hold until he falls asleep. What is the best and most age appropriate thing to do?Answer Question

i think i just needed to spell it out in my own words. I've been off-line because for the past few days I GOT SLEEP!!!! I ran into a mom at the play area in the mall. as we got to talking about being out late with out kids on a week night. She told me her kids bed time was 7:30 pm, and then gave my some tips. i have been siting by his toddler bed and just putting him back when he gets up.
