This is my 1st post. I have a 21month old, who is taking 2 hours to sleep & wakes up at 3am every night. I have recently weaned him off b-feeding & i think he wants that extra comfort?? I have also taken him out of his sleeping bag & use a quilt for him instead, because he was very restless with the quilt. Although I do believe that the sleeping bag was a better option.
Just recently I have been leaving him to cry for quite a while, when its time to sleep at bed-time. I'm struggling more with the 3am wake-up. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Is he spiking or really full on crying? I don't think it's helpful to leave them to cry if they're distressed but only you know what your child's cries mean.
Have you considered going back to the sleeping bag? It may just be that there have been too many changes too quickly and he's needing a bit of security.
