    Default Help getting my toddler to sleep.

    I'm at the end of my rope. For the last two weeks my toddler won't go to sleep.
    I'm a mess, so tired, stressed and out of ideas.
    He has now been fighting it for 1.5hrs. Last night it took 4hrs. It's getting worse and I don't know what to do.
    He is screaming for me so sometimes I go in and some I don't. Nothing helps, milk, water, cuddles, Panadol.
    I have no idea what's going on.
    Now he is screaming and banging his head. I want to crawl into a ball.
    Has anyone got any ideas??
    Thanks

    Could he be getting his molars? DS is unsettled at bedtime when he's cutting molars. Have you tried nurofen? Panadol doesn't do anything for my DS.

    What's his age? Bed time routine? Full day routine?

    How old? Does he still have a day nap? My DD gave her nap up just before she turned 2 and whenever she would have a nap she would lay there yelling and talking and playing for hours.

    I tried nurofen yesterday with no relief.
    I just stuck my finger in his mouth but couldn't feel anything.

    He is up at 6.30-7am breakfast
    Snack at 9.30
    Lunch at 11.30
    Sleep at 12.30 for 1-2hrs
    Afternoon tea at wake time
    Bed at 7pm

    He is quiet so hopefully he is off to sleep. I have a sore chest I'm so stressed.

    He turned two a few months ago. I think he still needs his nap because he still sleeps for 2hrs (mostly). He often asks for his nap!

    How old? My DD is 2y9m and if she has a nap I don't even bother putting her to bed until 9pm! If I do put her to bed earlier she lays there chatting and singing for 2-3 hours (though thankfully doesn't try to get up). I dropped her day naps a couple of months ago.

    He has always been an amazing sleeper. It's just been the last few weeks.
    Bedtime routine is bath, book, milk (in a cup) bed and a little play. Not always in that order as I have a 4 month old.
