DS is almost 10 months old. We do cosleep but just recently upgraded from a queen sized bed to a king so that DP didn't have to sleep apart from us anymore. (DS sprawls out quite a bit in his sleep.) We just can't get him to settle down for bed! The whole bedtime process is taking about 4 hours these days!!!!No matter what we've tried, what bedtime routine we work in, he purposely keeps waking himself up over and over again. He wants to play with DP, he wants to play with his blanket, or mommy, or anything in the world to keep him from shutting those eyes for the night. Tonight I was putting him to sleep finally by patting his back (he usually flips over, sits up and starts talking back to me, but he was so exhausted by this point he didn't have the energy!) and he was just humming over and over to try and keep himself awake.. he'd force his eyes open again and again until sleep won the battle. We usually nurse down when he finally stops fighting, but even that takes hours before he stops pulling off to play around. I don't know what to do - the tricks I picked up in the NCSS don't seem to be working this time around. It isn't healthy for anyone in the family to be going to bed this late, because we're an early household, and it definitely isn't good for DS to make himself overtired night after night. I just don't know what to do anymore to try and settle him in!!
