My guy (sleeps by himself, and has for the last several months now) is having a lot of trouble getting to sleep at night, and it's very upsetting for him.
I have shared custody of him, which means he spends half of his time with me, and half of his time with his dad. He doesn't appear to have a bedtime at his dad's, and I'm guessing he goes to bed pretty late.
That's pretty unlikely to change, so I'm working with what I got. I remodeled his bedroom and he likes it and feels comfortable in it. But bedtime is really difficult for him because he has such a hard time falling asleep!
He goes to bed sometime between 8:45 and 9, as a point of reference.
We have a bedroom routine (the whole evening is a routine, really).
If anyone has suggestions they'd be appreciated. I'm considering getting some audiobooks so that he can listen to those with the lights off and maybe they'll help lull him to sleep. I also considered getting him a projection nightlight so there's something on the ceiling to watch.
Help me think outside the box, mamas.
Thanks in advance.
