  • It depends on Leila's mood with me. Leila has little night terrors at night so when she has those I comfort her by soft classical music or lullabies and a book. Usually by the middle of the second book she is out. Try letting sleep to the tv or movie that you know he just might make him tired. Or maybe something is bothering him like his teeth or stomach. Or he is just trying to test you.

  • Some children really respond to a "big kid" bed easily my DD did at 17 mo. I wouldnt panic until you try that out first & see how it goes. It make take a little adjusting at first but maybe he'll like it just fine. My DD loves to have a fan going in her room while she sleeps & has all her "friends" (5 stuffies & a blanket) to help comfort her in the night.
