My son lately is refusing to nap during the day and not wanting to sleep at night. He has never been a good sleeper. He used to nap 2 hours in the afternoon and go to sleep at 8:00. But, last night he went to bed at 8:30 woke up at 10:30 and did not go back to sleep until 3:00am. He sleeps on a mattress in his own room. I had to put a child proof door knob on the inside of his door so he could not open it. If he sees his door is open he comes out. My husband works out of town so he is not home to help or let me have a nap. Unfortunately I am not having an easy time falling asleep myself these days. Any suggestions how to keep my son from waking up and wanting to stay up? Is this just a phase??

Hi. How long has your son been sleeping out of the crib? Is it possible that maybe he feels like he has more freedom to get up and roam?? Maybe you could put him back in the crib for a few months? Otherwise...maybe this is just a phase that he will soon grow out of. Sorry I know this doesn't help! Good Luck.

He has never slept in a crib. I b___stfed him and he would feed every hour. Therefore, I could only get any sleep if I had him with me. I b___stfed him until 11.5 months. I'm thinking as well that he knows he can get up and walk out the door. Just thought maybe someone had gone thru the same thing and had some advice.

My DS (now 20 months) moved out of his crib at 17 months because he wouldn't stay in the crib. In the past 6 weeks he has been a regular jack in the box at night.....up up up up sleeping through the night used to be regular not anymore. I have no ideas or suggestions because I am dealing with the same type issue. I hope it is just a phase because I am expecting #2 in 4 weeks!
