: : : Hi there... My ds that is 17 mos won't sleep by himself or through the night anymore... I know that it's been a security issure for him because we just moved into a new place AGAIN... I used to lay down with him until he was asleep and then get up and he would sleep from about 7pm to about 4-6 am and then climb into bed with my dh and I. but since we moved and also he has been having bad ear infections (he's getting toobs soon) he doens't sleep like that anymore.. now it's bedtime around 7ish still and I lay down with him still but now he wakes up screaming in about 3 hours and then won't go back into his own bed again he throws a temper tantrum until we bring him into bed with us... and then he's really restless and usually wakes up every 2 hours until morning... PLEASE HELP

: : Geez...must be an age appropriate thing cause my little Abigail is about the same age...16 1/2 mths and does the same thing!! She's gone from 2 hour naps to 30 mintue naps and wont sleep at all more than 30-1hour in her own bed. She has to sleep with is..and that's not a habit we have made!! I have always been worried about having a child in our bed and with our 7 year old we objected...and now the tables have turned to where she wont sleep anywhere else!! Let's just pray it's a phase for both of our sakes!

: Well i am glad to here there are others going through the same thing. My son is sixteen months old and it started about 1 month ago. He use to sleep 11 hours in his crib no problem, but now sleeps with us and he does the same waking up every couple of hours crying. We recently had another baby so I just thought that was the problem, maybe it is just a phase....

So What are you guys doing about it, are you just letting them sleep with you or are you fighting with them to keep them in their bed all night or are you putting them to bed in their bed and then if they wake up taking them into your bed... I've been putting James Jr. to bed in his bed (me laying down with him) and then when he wakes up trying to get him to stay in his bed but if that doesn't work I bring him into dh & my bed...
