Hi all... I transitioned my 20 mo out of a cot recently as we had terrible troubles and seemed to get really angry at the cot we I put him down. He loves his toddler bed but for two weeks it has taken between 50 and 100 returns to get him to sleep.
i'll describe process
- bath, teeth brush, stories then a kiss and a cuddle and to bed between 7 and 7.30
then I leave the room and stand outside his door.
DS then just comes to the door to get my hand to take him back to bed...again...and again. Process has been taking 1.5 hours. When I put him back he won't settle enough for me to even tuck him in.
I've been trying for about two weeks now and at about 1 hour in when DS puts his head on my shoulder when I put him to bed if I sit with him for 5 mins he will go to sleep - out of exhaustion!
can someone tell me where I am going wrong?
