My son is 3 1/2 years old and has a VERY difficult time falling asleep and staying asleep. Bedtime is 8:30. Without a nap, he is up until 11pm-midnight... With a nap, he is up until Midnight-1am. He wakes up between 6am-7am.
His Pediatrician suggested Melatonin... DOESN'T WORK! At least not on my son... lol. I then tried Valerian(herbal sleep aide)... DOESN'T WORK!
The other problem, is that he wakes up in the middle of the night and gets into EVERYTHING. This morning, I woke to find my birth control pills (were put up where i thought he couldn't get them), dice, an oven mitt, a formerly whole pack of gum with half the gum M.I.A., and an opened pocket knife that he HAD to have climbed my bookshelf to get. This is getting dangerous.
I thought about putting a doorknob cover on the inside of his bedroom door, but he is potty trained, and wouldn't be able to get out if he had to go potty. HELP!!!!!!!
