Hey just wondering if anyone has any tips on how to get my toddler to sleep in his OWN BED! He will only go to sleep if i rock him to sleep or feed him the bottle until he falls asleep in my bed. If i try and let him go alone he cries until he vomits. Its distressing, and as i am due for our second child in 4 weeks i really need to do something about this!

  • Put a TV in his room & put on his best show.

  • Good to know! There really interesting comments on this!

  • Good luck with it all!

  • How did you go with this?

  • I hope he is now sleeping in his own bed for you.

  • How did you go? Does he sleep in his own bed now?

  • The fact that he cries until he vomits is enough to see a child health nurse for assistance.

  • Children pick up on these things that may change their life too

  • I found that sometimes you just have to do what works, to keep everyone happy, and to save your sanity. He was probably picking up on the fact that things were about to change and he wasn’t going to be the baby of the family anymore.

  • If he hers that distressed is it really that important to b in his own bed? It won’t be long and he will b too old to sleep next to u.

  • Hope you managed to find a solution and all is going well with the new addition to the family! My daughter was in the terrible habit of being rocked to sleep when she was younger and the only way we could end it was to lay with her in her bed while she went to sleep.

  • How old is he? At age 2 they tend to b like that as its terrible twos!

  • Did you manage to get your son to sleep in his own bed?

  • Try a child gate across his door and just be strong and don’t rock him to sleep

  • How are you going hun??
