    Default 17m old sleep issue

    DS will only fall asleep in our arms for day sleeps and night sleeps.
    I don't mind the cuddles, however if he wakes during a day nap or at 2am, he requires the arms to fall asleep. Sometimes he won't go back into the cot so I have to bring him into bed with me. I don't mind co-sleeping, but ds2 is usually in our bed, so it's hard.
    I dont know what to do.
    Patting doesn't work as he just screams until i pick him up.

    Can you move him to a single bed? Then you can lie with him till he goes to sleep and if he wakes up just hop in with him. We did this with DS and after a while he would let us leave him for a minute to go to the toilet or something. He now is happy to fall asleep by himself if I leave him for a few minutes and sleeps through

    I'm sorry if I offend you but it's become a habit to him now.
    If I were you I'd just put him in his own room by that's just me I have never let our children sleep in our bed or be aided to sleep. It usually takes 3 days to break a habit good luck

    17m.
    I think he is too young for a bed.

    He just moves a lot, even towards the rear of the cot.
    Perhaps in summer when he's closer to 2 and it won't matter if he's not fully covered.

    Strict bed time routine may help. Same thing in the same order every night.
    As pp said it can take 3 days to break a habit. Perhaps plan breaking the habit for when your hubby has time off work. If it was me I would go cold turkey. There may be a bit of crying though. Assuming you don't want that I would focus on the routine and keep putting your DS to sleep in his own bed. Ill try and think of more suggestions..
