My son is 21 months old and he hates to go to sleep - we can't go anywhere overnight because he has to be in his own bed or he will just stay up forever I think.. yet he still crys himself to sleep each night. He doesn't try to get out of the crib, but he does sleep on a cot at daycare .. yet I can't get him to lay down on the bed with me for anything. Do you think he'd like a toddler bed instead of the crib? We have the crib that turns into a bed but I was waiting til he tried to climb out before transitioning to the bed part. Or would that make the fight to go to bed a million times harder? Right now we bath, read books and I lay him down but he will still sometimes cry for up to 30 minutes.. I am nervous about big boy bed time but maybe he just needs more room? anyone? By the way - we've did the adjusting of times, he's not crying cause he's not tired - Our ped said some kids just fight to not go to bed like this..ugh.
