  • We had this problem, too. We were trying to put him to bed around 8 - 8:30. We finally just started to put him to bed later and later. He now goes to bed between 9:15 and 9:30, but it's without a fight. Hope this helps.

  • My 3 year old does that some nights. We got him this pooh bear that lights up and sings lullaby's. He doesn't mind so much now.
