My almost two year old is the same. We’ve got a healthy routine: shower, dinner, bedtime stories. But it takes one hour minimum before he falls asleep.
He does sleep in his own bed but I end up sleeping with him, because he still wakes up, and looks for me. This I think is completely natural and on most nights I don’t mind it. There will be a day when he’ll kick me out of his room.
I also wonder, I’ve always been a night owl. My mind is the most active at night? Could my kid be the same?
I used to get frustrated but now I focus on being present. Their early years fly by!
