i have a 7 year old son.
we share a room, but seperate beds. my bed is on one side of the room, his is on the other side of the room.
lately, he's been having a HARD time getting to sleep. i mean, i'll lay him down around 8:30- do the bedtime routine, and he'll still be up. Saturday night, i forgot to put his sheets in the dryer so i told him he could sleep in my bed that night. that night, within 20 minutes, he was fast asleep.
tonight- its going on 2:30am, and he finally just now fell asleep! been laying in bed for the last 6 hrs, doing nothing- just wide awake.
the doctor says that its just a phase he's going through and he'll get out of it eventually. its not light thats keeping him up; we're in the basement. there's not a difference in temp from one end of the room to the other.
i'm seriously considering just letting him sleep in my bed from now on... and either sleep with him or take the twin. (which seriously- i dont want. i enjoy my queen lol)... but i'm unable to move him to his bed after he falls asleep. he's 70 lbs and i got a bad shoulder injury. i dont think its the difference in beds. i mean, he's had that twin since he was 2 years old. the queen, my bed, its over 10 years old, maybe almost 15! (it was my mom's before she moved to another country)
if he sleeps in my bed, then at least i know he's getting a good 9 hours of sleep. if he stays in his bed, continuing with how he's currently sleeping (or not sleeping), he's only getting 4 hrs of sleep- no naps.
wwyd, if you got this far?
