Thomas used to be a GREAT sleeper.
I would put him in bed at 9:30, we would say a prayer, read a couple of books, I would kiss him good night, he would wave bye bye, I would close the door and he would sleep until 9:30 - 10:00 the next day.
Lately he's been horrible. He won't even lay down when we put him in the crib, he'll stand and try to get out. He'll cry and cry and cry and call for us, and cough (fake cough). Singing, reading, night lights, stuffed animals - nothing that used to soothe and comfort him works.
I let him cry it out in hopes he will stop. But he doesn't.
I get him out and bring him to bed with me in hopes he will fall asleep. But he doesn't.
I'll put on a movie in hopes he'll calm down and sleep. But he doesn't.
When he finally does fall asleep, he wakes up at around 4:30 - 5ish. Then I can't fall back asleep.
I don't know what's going on. I don't know what else to do.
I know that there is something wrong, I know that something is off - my motherly instincts tell so - but I can't figure it out.
I wish he could tell me.
