  • I check to see if he needs changed, give him a kiss and lay him back down and occasionally I will rock him to see if this will help . He shares a room with his 4 yr old brother maybe that is an issue

  • I used to give my toddler a bath with a lavender bath wash and use a lavender sented lotion that i would use to give my lil one a massage which would relax them and they feel asleep pretty fast... johnson &johnson have great products for that and you can find it just about anywhere... hope this helps you =o)

  • Do you run right in at the first peep? If so, try giving it a minute to see if he can sooth himself back to sleep. Try implamenting a lovey(blanket, toy) if he doest have one. This can help them feel secure. I would also try to keep the checking on him process as quiet as possible. Don't chek him diaper unless you can smell him and simply lay him down and say night night. Good luck mommy!
