Child rearing is a piece of piss
That's your problem. He needs to be held to fall asleep. This means that if he wakes up in his bed he can't get himself back to sleep.
Try settling him in his bed, with a hand rubbing his back. That way he knows you're there. You can gradually progress from there to just resting your hand on his back, to sitting beside the bed, to sitting beside the door, to moving out of his room entirely.
It's hard work, though. Good luck.
A few beers always make me sleepy.
Keep him awake more during the day Diabo and make sure he is tired out..its easier to have them crying during the day than all night mate trust me
I wasn't gloating, just saying there is not much you can do. Some kids sleep, some don't
My brother has a 2 year old, she won't fall asleep until around midnight, and even then only in him and his wife's bed
If this works I think you could actually go out for a drink next and he would still fall asleep.
Personally, I almost completely lost my hearing after becoming a father. My wife has told me our kids were terrible sleepers.
Needs to bulk up.
Will be class next year.
My uncle had this problem with my cousin. When she wouldn't stop crying, he'd run a warm bath for her. Then he'd put her in it. Once the bubbles stop coming up, you pull their head out of the water and they've stopped crying.
This isn't true. Don't try it.
That's your end game, right there.
Yeah, I remember my son being an angel to get to sleep but as soon as he started teething it was a nightmare...couldn't get him to sleep until gone midnight, but then he would still wake up every few hours for food and would just cry constantly...worse few months ever
Haven't read the thread all the way through, but I had experience of a similar sort. My youngest lad (he's made it past his past his 19th Birthday now and still wails a fair bit) never slept for more than about 20 minutes at a time and screamed for about an hour inbetween these little sleep episodes.
The best advice we could get from a doctor was to put him as far away from our bedroom as we could so we could get some sleep. Fuckin doctors sometimes.
It turned out that he was allergic to cows milk, and seeing as we were feeding him SMA which is derived from it every time the poor little fucker screamed we were forcing more of the stuff that was hurting him down his neck.
On advice of one of his grandparents we switched him to soya milk. His shit stank and was a funny green colour but it cured him.
