First, exhaustion. He just won't go to sleep at night and often stays up until 9:30 - 10:30, playing in his room or reading. We can make him stay in his room, but can't make him go to sleep. Hi, pachouly! /waveIt sounds like he is OVER-tired. Have you tried backing up his bedtime? When The Wombat starts acting like this, usually near growth spurt time, bedtime gets ratcheted back. If that means he eats dinner and goes to bed, so be it until he is well-rested. (It's not usually that extreme, though.)What's his bedtime routine? Maybe a very quiet story combined with an earlier bedtime will help him nod off a bit sooner.Also protein is helpful, I find, for The Wombat to sleep properly. I read somewhere that boys especially tend to sleep TOO heavily if they drink a lot of milk and it can interfere with nighttime dryness. As long as you're prepared to deal with that, a glass of milk (and teeth-brushing, of course :-P ) helps The Wombat sleep more soundly.The transition issue may vanish once he is properly rested. The Wombat can be quite grumpy in the mornings if he is not resting well but when he is, he hops right out of bed to greet the day! :-)Good luck!Minxie
