OK so I am at my wits end here.
I can count on one hand the number of times my almost 2.5year old has slept through the night.
I refuse to sleep train in the traditional sense of CIO. I am ok with co-sleeping, I am ok with him waking up and coming to our bed.
So here is the problem he will not fall asleep. We get him ready for bed read a couple books turn out the latest then starts the "i'm hungry" or "i want to go outside the door"
By the time he gets to sleep it often past on nine
Then the night time waking starts anywhere from 12-4. And that usually takes 1-2 hrs in its own right. And we are up by no later then 7
Pediatrician recommended melatonin to help him get to bed. That usually shaves about 10-15 minutes of the falling asleep part.
I am worried about his well being and what is left of my own and my husband's sanity
At this point what would u do.
