I just don't know what to do with my son. He is too structured. I really did nit think there was such a thing. Putting him to bed over the past 2 1/2 months has been a challenge. We brush teeth, read two books, rock for a few minutes, then sing songs in bed.
It all started with the light. He was scared and needed the light on. Then we would leave the room and he would get mad if we would nit walk slow or fast enough ( he is into if things move fast or slow ). I always have to go into our bedroom first because I have to change. If I miss that step he gets mad. So I pretend to do that. Once I get downstairs , I am Back up within 10 min because he is crying that he us scared and wants to rock. This could go on for the one time upstairs or until the 5 th time.
It is becoming taxing. Sometimes he wakes up in the middle of the night but then we can just rock him for literally one minute and he will go back to bed. He gets up more than Amelia!!! And at grandma's ( who is also daycare) he refuses to sleep in the room. Has to be on the couch.
Now I could let him cry. But he seems SO SCARED If we don't comfort him. I just don't know what to do. A stuffed animal to protect him does nothing and the light on helps him go to sleep but that does not always matter either cuz his light is on and he still gets scared.
