My son is 27 months and has recently started waking during the night, not every night, for up to 4 hrs at a time. We are so tired today I have phoned in sick to work, can't do that all the time!
He screams if left on his own, so we lay down next to his cot to sleep but he just sits there refusing to lay down and sleep. Wide awake.
I have tried cuddling him in my bed or on my make shift bed on the floor next to him. He is calm when i do this but wide awake and chatty, playing around, so it gets me nowhere. I have gone in multiple times to lay him down, as he cries when i leave, and even pushed him in his buggy back and forth the other night in desperation!
I ended up leaving him to cry the other night as literally nothing works. I hate doing that but exhausted all my soft options.
I need to pick one option and go with it but don't know what's best. I would gladly stay with him if he'd actually go to sleep, but it doesn't seem to work! Is leaving him to cry my only option? Never really resorted to this before!
