This is the first time this has happened to me my 20month old woke up at 12 and i tried patting him back to sleep and he just kept babbling like he thought it was play time! I was so tired that after 40mins of patting him i took him into bed with me as a last resort and he still wouldn't sleep! He kept sitting up and talking loud and wriggling so i then had to take him out of the room as DP gets up early for work and wasn't getting any sleep so i gave him some panadol then sat on lounge chair rocking him i was out there till just before 4am so we finally both got to sleep then, he was forcing himself to get up by 7am he looked so tired and his body kept dropping on the pillow like he needed to keep sleeping but he got up. Im so tired and he looks tired too he has never done this before has anyone else had this happen before?? Usually if he wakes up during the night i can easily get him back to sleep so im confused. He is now playing like he usually does i don't know how when i feel tired he would defiently be feeling the same.
