Are there toys in your toddlers room *update*?
So I spoke with dh tonight & I wanted to post our current plans on what to do about this. First off we did remove the toys from his room. He has a couple books & a stuffed car pillow but that's all that's in there now. We're working to establish his bed time routine which is still fairly new to him. We've made some additions to it hoping that maybe if it were a little more drawn out then it'll be easier to understand or at least give him more time to unwind. The routine is bath time, put PJs on, brush teeth, putting away his toys that are now in our living room, where I'll let him pick out a book to read. Then we go potty (we're in training mode), tuck him in, read the book he picked out & we say our good nights. Now I know I can't expect immediate results, so far we've had to go in there twice to turn his lights back off. The first time he was wandering around I assume looking for a toy to find. The second time he was sitting back in bed. So far he hasn't thrown any tantrums which compared to lately is already a great improvement at least for tonight :)
