We just switched my son(22 mos) from his crib to a toddler bed because he was climbing out of it and had hurt himself more than once in his crib. Now he refuses to fall asleep in his bed by himself. He will fall asleep if I lay down with him (imagine a full grown woman trying to fit onto a toddler bed..) He'll fall asleep on the floor in the livingroom rather than in his bed. Any advice on how to remedy this?

You might be interested in this article about putting kids to bed without tears. http://www.ehow.com/how_5237198_put-child-bed-tears.html Also see some bedtime books http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=23 I wouldn't get in the habit of spending a long time laying in bed with him (as much as you may want to), it's a hard habit to break once you get started.
