|Hysterical non sleeping 2 year old
||[May. 14th, 2007|09:18 pm]
Please help. My 2 year old son (27 months) refuses to go to sleep without me or my husband sitting there until he's unconscious. |
We did co-sleep. My son has been sleeping all night everynight in his own bed for about 6 months now. Bath, pjs, 3 stories, turn the light off, kiss, leave the room while he's still fully awake and everything.
Now when the stories are over he gets hysterical. We've let him cry himself to sleep in the past. It lasts for all of 5 minutes before he gives up. This new thing is crying and screaming and throwing himself around till he can't breathe. Getting up and opening the door and sitting in the hall crying, hysterical. Even if we're sitting there with him he's hysterical.
He doesn't have a fever. I've gone through all of his body parts at least twice today asking if they hurt and what not. Nothing.
The only thing that's really changed is that I am now 7 weeks pregnant with our second. He knows. We talk about it. I'm not sure that he completely understands. He's known he's going to be a big brother for about 3 weeks now. It's only the last three days he throws these tantrums.
