I'm going crazy. Let me start by saying my 2 year old son has never been a good sleeper. He only started sleeping through the night like 4 monthas ago. Its been a loooong road to get to that. Well every night he needs me to lay with him for an hour at least till he falls asleep. I'm getting so tired of it. I have tons of things to do and by the time he actually falls asleep all I have time to do is shower and go to bed myself. I really would like more time to myself and or with my hubby at night :/ I will not let him cry himself to sleep. I just don't know what to do! I feel bad because I'm the one who made it like this since we co sleep and I always have layed with him to get him to sleep but I'm ready to break the habit especially since we want to move him into his own room. Help!! Any ideas or even moms who've been there??

A special "sleeping buddy" like a stuffed animal. Or a picture of mommy by his bed? Idk

My DS was like this too, me or DH (mostly DH) would have to sit next to his bed until he fell asleep, or he would be asking for us, or coming out of bed, or saying he was scared, or something else. finally i said NO MORE. if he got out of bed he would be walked right back into bed, if he cried we would go in there and tell him its ok, pat him on the back and walk out again, if he would try to distract us with needing to pee/poop we would let him go and do that, but if it was im scared/i want another story/sit with me type of stuff, it was no. its bed time go to sleep. i know it sounds harsh but you have to lay down the law

Does he need a little nightlight? Or maybe some soothing music to help him sleep?
