HELP!!!!! What am I doing wrong?
« on: July 31, 2005, 19:06:32 pm »
About 7 weeks I started pu/pd with my 18 month old as I am pregnant with no. 3 and wanted him to be in a good routine, hopefully sleeping all night, before the baby was born.

It was hard going but I perservered and he seemed to settle into it after about a week but it didn't last long.  For the last 5 weeks he has been constantly waking and walking into our bedroom.  I have to pick him up and put him back into his bed, this can happen between 5 and 8 times a night, so as you can imagine I am absolutely exhausted.  (Dh works away from home Mon - Fri) 

I only have 4 weeks left in the pregnancy and I am really worried that I'm not going to get any sleep at all if this keeps up.

Any advice would be greatly appreceiated.

I'm going to move this to toddler sleep issues, where you'll probably get more response.

What happens when he comes into your room?  How does he go to sleep at the begining of the night?

I would try just continually putting him back in, but no eye contact or talking at all.  If he is getting any sort of reaction or attention from you, he'll just keep doing it.

I feel for you as I'm sure you are exhausted especially as you're nearing the end of your pregnancy!  I personally don't have any experience with this as my 20 month old ds is still in a crib, but the above is what has worked for friends of mine.
