  • I'm having the same problem with my two, they always end up in bed with me...I tried everything. My mom suggested that you should start off slow. Put Him to bed, sit there and read a book or sing...then every night, move your chair closer to the door till eventually you can read and leave. I am on night 3 of trying this. most nights he falls asleep quickly, so I got lucky. lol.
