At present our child is in day care 4 days per week. We work full time. He sleeps for about 45 minutes to 1 hour at Day Care.
We are finding that he just isn’t tired. He can stay up until 10pm at night. We put him into bed and he cries, gets out of bed, walks around etc and just wont go to sleep until utterly exhausted at around 9.30 or 10pm.
Im exhausted and not getting anything done around the house nor am I winding down at night. Do you have any tips on how to get him into a better routine? Or to put him to bed without the screaming and protests?
I am incredibly structured and organised, he eats a refined sugar free diet and gets plenty of exercise. We are by no means a family ruled by children or disorganised, we are just finding he is not relaxing or getting into a night routine very well.
