My 3 year old son has had a lot of sleep issues since he turned one and not wanting to nap.
I put him to bed at 7:30 every night with the same routine since he was an infant. I can here him talking and jumping and playing with his toys still at 9pm i go in numerous times and tell him it is bed time. I really don't know what time he goes to sleep, but i do know he wakes up around 7am. He used to wake up at 7:30am. When he wakes up under his eyes they are red like he has not slept in the last 24hrs. I put him down for a nap around 2:30pm and he fights that but only sleeps for a half hr to an hr. Even then he wakes up and his eyes have the darkness underneath.
I don't think he is getting enough sleep at night or in nap, and he has tons of energy and can go for days with out sleep if u let him.
Any suggestions on how i can get him to sleep at night and for nap so his eyes don't look so sleepy all the time. He even whines and cries and pulls his ears constantly when he is sleepy, but just won't let himself go down.
I know he doesn't have an ear infections because his check up was clear for that.
He fights his tiredness all day, and constantly says his eyes hurt and he is tiered. I tell him if u just take a hr to hr and half nap he would feel better.
What do u all think, or suggestions on what i can give him to get a good night sleep.
