I have a 2.5 year old and his sleep has turned to Sh!t in the past few weeks.
His little sister was born 3 months ago and for the first 2 months we thought he was doing ok, but recently it's like he has a fear of sleep, somethings not right.
He gets so upset once we finish stories and songs and go to leave plus usually wakes once during the night and is awake from 5:30 onwards.
We've tried different things like telling him were leaving for 2/4/8 minutes and returning but he's just too hysterical, the only thing that works seems to be staying on his couch until he falls asleep (often will take awhile though as he's so worked up).
His eating has also deteriorated recently, he just won't eat anything. Even his favourite things he has 3 bites of and refuses any more. He's also been showing a lot more signs of jealousy towards his sister lately.
We don't know if we need a psychologist for him? Or for us? Or a sleep consultant? Or just ride it out?
Any advice would be welcome
