My DS has started having trouble going to sleep. He is nearly 2 and we think he is teething also. When I put him to bed he takes at least an hour to go off to sleep. This is sometimes with protests, jumping up wanting hugs or just laying in his cot. I have to stay in with him until he goes to sleep (not a new thing) but he is really fighting it at the moment. I have tried a tight routine, Paracetamol, teething gel without much success. I have started to (very reluctantly) think that maybe he is getting too much sleep and needs to drop his day sleep but he is still getting very tired during the day and sleeps 1.5-2hrs.
He has had a couple of upheavals in that his Granny is visiting us, and we have been interstate for xmas/new years.
Does anyone have any ideas or tips that could help? Im getting very tired and frustrated with trying to get him to sleep. He isnt normally like this and does mostly sleep all night.
