We've had a strange one lately which for the last two nights in the row has just been truly hard to handle
Basically our 2 and half year old will wake up at say 2am in the morning crying and moaning loudly and continuously and then when you go in he's fully awake an won't go back down to sleep period! He will literally be awake until bedtime the next day!
We've tried everything and no matter what we do, it just makes him more awake and he wants to play
If we leave him in his room, he just cries and screams louder and louder endlessly
We've tried bringing him in with us (and he just jumps on the bed, climbs on us etc doesn't settle), doing book time again, staying with him in his room (he just gets up and plays on his own) - if he wakes... he stays awake!
Normally he sleeps from 7:30pm till about 7am the next morning no dramas
and he's been doing this lately once a week for several weeks and this week is the first time he's done it two nights in a row
scared that tonight will be the third
