We were on a good schedule prior to this where he went down almost without a fight every night at 8 and was really good about taking his naps during the day. Now when we put him in his bed because he is showing all the signs of being ready, he just screams bloody murder. I think he is petrified of going to sleep. So what do I do, should I let him cry?
If I let him cry for 10 mins then he will settle himself and lay down and go off...but it is the longest and most agonizing 10 mins. Should I be soothing him instead? I am afraid if I do that then he will start wanting that as routine. I am totally torn...has anyone been through this??
