My son who just turned three goes to sleep in his own bed at night. His baby brother sleeps with me (4 months). Our pattern for a long time, maybe about a year and a half is that he goes to sleep in his bed and then comes into my bed sometime during the wee hours of the morning to sleep 'till it's time to get up. Lately he's being so bossy it's driving me nuts.
"Face this way", "stop squishing me", "move over", "wanto sleep on your arm". : It's really difficult for me to be too accomodating to the whims of my 3 year old at 4:00 in the morning. Know what I mean? Last night he even had a temper tantrum whch obviously woke up the baby and none of us got sleep for a good hour after that. I need help because last night I really didn't even want him near me at all which is a terrible feeling. I don't know what to do. Does anybody know how to help a three year old sleep through the night? I mean he never has really but now it's actually becoming a bit of a problem. His four month old bro seems to be a better sleeper than he is but between the two of them, I'm zonked and my patience is wearing!!
