Just wondering if you have any tips...it's a challenge for me right now and my DS.
Challenge for us right now too :( I hope you get some ideas that will help us both!
Well, Brady usually falls asleep on the couch with us at night and then we put him in his bed.
My sons routine is constant, even on the weekends. He goes to bed at 9 and I sing his good night song. He always has his stuffies also.
bath, sleep meds, cuddle time til about 5 mins before his bedtime, than its daddy who carrys him in and reads him a bedtime story or two, than he gets covered in his blankets gets his monkey by me, than kisses and hugs and we tell him we love him, shut off his light and put up the baby gate
I have to feed Jacob one last bottle, then hold him until he's out. Then I carry him into the bedroom and lay him in his crib. 95% of the time he stays asleep all night. Once in a while when he wakes I just put him in bed with me, because I'm too exhausted to try and get him back to sleep any other way.
I had to ask because my son needs someone to be with him at night..we play baby music for my 5 year old..my DH snapped and spanked him because my son didnt fall asleep since it takes him a whole hour sometimes longer. I was very upset!!!!! I lay with him, hug him, kiss him, sing to him, etc...but he gets distracted of course and ends up playing instead. I wish my husband didnt lose it. He said it's because he has school this next morning and he wants him to sleep already. I need to get my DS on a same time sleeping schedule...thats my fault though if he's up so late....SMH!!! =(
