My ds is 19 yrs old and he still takes naps and sleeps through the night unless he is having GI issues and his stomach is hurting him

How about your kiddos?

Ds does bother most days. Dd doesn't nap and is a horrible sleeper. She has to be in my bed and is super fidgety and a real crabapple.

My DS does not nap on a regular basis anymore, but will once in a while take a catch up nap or fall asleep in the car. He sleeps very well at night now, however. He used to have sleep apnea, but we had his tonsils and adenoids out, so it helped a lot. Periodically, for what reason I don't know, he will ocassionally get up in the middle of the night.

She's 4. She use to be awesome when she was younger. Then she hit 2 and refused to nap then got a big girl bed and refused to sleep in it.

oh no-did you try to put the big girl bed at the end of your bed?  I have heard that has worked-then slowly move it out of your room and eventually to her room--I know this may sound weird but heard it has worked for many people--

or how about a big girl bed party!! Like so excited about the bed--and have her stuffed animals or dolls and you and your ds and dh and have a little party about sleeping in big girl bed and how cool it is to sleep in it--don't know if you want ideas-but just thought of that too-

She does so much better when daddy is at work at night. She sleeps for me. LoL! She has a mattress in our room, but likes being in our bed so she can see the tv. She'll grow out of it eventually. She will get to Pre-k/k and get made fun of, or find out all her friends have thier own bed, she start staying in her room.

My son is 11. He doesn't take naps and most of the time he sleeps through the night. He does take Clodine at bedtime.

Willy sleep has gotten worse. He has been staying up for 24 hrs-36hrs at a time than crashes. He still is taking his melatonin. I see his dr in a couple of weeks. already called them to see if their is something else to try.
