Brayden has always been a good sleeper.
I know many children with special needs/medical needs have a difficult time sleeping. I do not know how the families manage.
Lately, Brayden has had problems sleeping. He has been crying (really screaming) at bedtime. He eventually settles down. Last night it was a long time...he went to bed at 7:00 and screamed until 11:00. He was so tired that he could not sleep.
This has been happening during the day too. For the majority of his life Brayden has had no problem falling asleep whenever he felt the need. It did not matter where, the amount of noise or things going on; he could just fall asleep. Now he seems so tired and cannot manage to take a nap. Some days, he screams and screams. Eyes bloodshot from exhaustion. He just needs to sleep.
I realize it may be his age. He is three years old. The age when many children grow out of a nap. But he needs his sleep. If he does not sleep during the day, he has problems settling down at night.
How do you make a child go to sleep?
