  • Start with a constant, nightly bed time routine. Do the exact same thing every night, same order, same time. We do baths, snack, brush teeth, book and tuck into bed, lights out. If you want to sit with him, ok. If not, leave the room. If he gets up, put him right back in bed, calmly. Do it every single time he wakes up without saying a word. It will take awhile but he will figure it out! We had to do this with our daughter who was insane at bed time. It has solved our problem! Good luck and hope that helps!
