My son sometimes... no most of the time has fits about going to bed.. he's been doing this for a really long while now. probably since late august. we've tried every suggestion out there. He will be 3 in May.
he also cries in his sleep really late at night. i've only heard that a few times.. and my mom heard it twice when he stayed the night with her.. but no i haven't gone in to check on him because it doesn't last long and he never gets up..
I don't know how to help him.. I feel terrible for him because he hates bed time so bad.. we have a great routine though.. dinner, bath, teeth, book(s) , talk, sleep..
he is also excessively scared of quite a few things.. like shaking scared.. we had a problem with (hadow) shadows.. but now we tell the shadow hi and goodnight while making it wave and that usually makes him alright..
i've visited with his pediatrician and they offered no help.. but he now has a new one that we have not visited yet..
any similiar stories? any help?
