3 yo SS sleeps in BM bed...

My ss cannot sleep through the night at our house. He has his own bed and his own room but at his mothers house, she insists that her 3yo sleeps in her bed with her.

He wakes up at night and wanders the house , asks DH for water when he has some that his shirt has a tag, walks out to the living room where my DH sleeps when ss is over (since our room is in the basement) and wants to chat.

How do we break him of the cycle of not sleeping without someone or his mother in the bed when he is at our home?

 Bed-breaking can be very difficult. How often does your DH get SS?

 I was just curious as to the arrangement. With my DD and SS, we just had to keep with it. Worked with them every single night until they finally 'got it' so to speak. Every time they would get out of bed, we would take them back in their rooms, put them in bed, and explain that they had to stay in there. Does your SS have a TV in his room? Cartoons can be soothing and help.

DD was nearly 4 before she was broke, and SS was nearly 6!

He doesn't have a tv in his room. He has tons of toys which we are thinking of removing since he got up several times and mentioned he didnt like his toys being in there. Also was thinking of maybe getting one of those night lights that make images on the ceiling so if he wakes up he has something to look at.

He may just not be a good sleeper. My ods and my dd are both poor sleepers. Dd is 3 and wanders and wakes up. Ods was worse he never slept, he still doesn't sleep well. (thank god for yds my good sleeper he will sleep whenever where ever)

Suposidly he "sleeps thoughout the night" at BM home and that  " he is just uncomfortable being with you". Or so BM states.

Very stressfull figuing we have him sleep over sometimes during the week whenever it isn't confienent for BM on the weekend. When he doesnt' sleep, we don't sleep and we cannot run our business.

 Maybe put his toys in his closet? Taking them out of his room period seems kind of overkill, personally. If you think it will work though, go for it!

Well guess what that's sometimes how life with a child is. You adjust and learn to deal. If you can't run your business because he spends the night then I guess dad doesn't need overnight visitation. I haven't slept more than 4 hours a night since 2002 because I have two non sleepers.

He doesn't have many in his room, just the ones he brings in their during the day. All his toys are in the living room.
