My son will be 3 next month and he's always been a great sleeper until reciently. He still takes great naps and will sleep all night, most of the time, but he's starting to want to sleep with me. He doesn't like dad in bed with me, and if dad is in bed he's got to sleep between us. My husband is gone 3 nights out of the week and last week he had to sleep with me every night. I told him every day when dad came home he was going to sleep in his room and he seemedok with that. Last night he came into our room at 1am (he was in his room first and had no problem going down) and crawled into bed with us after hitting DH in the face and telling him no, mommy's bed. I wasn't awake for all of this and I had no idea what was going on, I just felt him curl up next to me.
Why is he acting like this all of a sudden? He's always been so easy to put to bed but now he always wants "mommy hugs" until he falls asleep. I tried to ignore him tonight but he just kept crying and crying so I went and rocked him to sleep. Dh tried to comfort him and he would tell him no, only mommy.
What do I do? I can't have this every night!
