This boy just doesn't sleep.

He stays in his room, in bed, most of the time. The problem isn't that he gets up constantly, he just won't actually fall asleep. He talks to himself, sings, rolls around, kicks his feet up in the air, just playing. It's been an hour and 45 minutes, it's like this every single night. Then he's up at the crack of dawn. He doesn't nap and only sleeps about 8 hours per night. Everything I'm googling says 4 year olds need between 10-12 hours. He's nothing but a ball of energy at all times. I try putting them to bed earlier and earlier, this can't be normal!

I use lavender essential oil on the bottoms of my 4 year old feet. It's not only soothing and calming, but it's all natural. It works great on my son and every night he asks for "oil".....lol

My dd is 2.5 and it takes a lot to calm her down too lol there's no way she sleeps 12 hrs a nite unless she's sick...but she's not cranky about it or anything, just a forever rolling ball of energy haha
