10 months and Still fighting Going to bed!!!

  • We recently conquered this. Completely by accident. One night a series of events happened and it was perfect. We now repeat it nightly. :)

    It goes...

    2. Shut off TV

  • PP's have mentioned a routine and that works for us too.  Do you have a regular bedtime routine in place?  These things will help signal him it's time for bed and he will get used to this pretty quickly.  I also ditto a PP about trying an e
