How can I get my 4 y/o to start sleeping through the night again?

About a month ago my 4 y/o starting waking up in the middle of the night and climbing in bed with my husband and I or wanting to watch tv or wanting to raid the fridge. This is tough because he's getting ready to start pre-k this week. Any ideas about how to get him back on schedule?

  • I know it is hard, but keep putting him back in bed immediately after he comes into your room. Don't feel bad about doing're not being cruel. He's probably a little nervouse about starting with him and see if you can do anything to make him feel more at ease.

  • all i can think of is removing naps if he has any and later meals that way he'll sleep all night and have food in his stomach.
