They called the cops! (update)

OMG! Thank you so much to whoever asked me if something was new in his room! He got a whole bunch of hand me down clothes in a garbage bag that we put in the corner of his room. The nightlight was casting a weird light on it. I took it out of his room and no more crying. He fell right to sleep.

  • see if you would have paid attention to it instead of just letting him cry, poor guy was probably PETRIFIED and he was just stuck in there

  • p.s. don't let that anonymous poster get to you. I am sure nothing has EVER slipped her notice because she has radar, xray vision, and can read the minds of everyone she meets. LOL

    Just be relieved that it is figured out, and that your son has nothing more serious to cry over than a scary shadow!

  • thats great that you found out whats wrong. I am a huge believer in cry it out, as long as everything else has been tried. I have heard that it helps expand thier lungs because it works them out. my ds, 3, was just up for 12hrs with no nap even though we put him down for one and all i could do was let him cio cause he was soo tired nothing else would work. Good luck with your little one!
