2year old afrad of the dark?
gota a sleeping problem with my son (aged 2yrs7months) at the mo, basically he has been goingto bed really well for the last few months, he shares a room with his 5 year old sister, they usually chat for a bit with the light off and door half closed after there normal routine,then they both drift of to sleep 10-20mins later.
however for the last few nights when i kiss him goodnight and go to leave he gets very upset and demands i leave the light on, i tell him no and go out the room and he just runs out after me, i have tryed putting him back in bed over and over again but he just gets himself in such a state very quickly til he can barely breath ,(he has been diagnosed with asthma)i then have to calm him down give him his inhaler and then just hang around the door till he falls asleep,
just dont no what has gone wrong i havent change there bath,pjs, milk, story routine. He has even started crying in the night shouting at me to turn light on, i ignor him for as long as i can but i dont want him getting out of breath, i really hope this is just a short faze has anyone else experianced this sort of problem, its like hes terrified of bedtime all of a sudden as in the day if i start tidying up he says ''its not bedtime. i dont want to go to bed'' sometimes this is like lunchtime and i have to reassure him its not bedtime... .
any advice would be very much appriciated.
