Bedtime has now become fun and games. Of course i understand that it is more fun up than in bed but he is totally tired! This evening was a classic, he lays there rolling around, playing with the blankets, curtains anything that can distract him. When he is finally quiet and almost asleep he cries out and starts all over again (this can go on for about 30 minutes). Tonight he kept clutching his nappy and saying "poo", i checked it many times and informed him "no poo" only to have him cry and clutch and say it again. So thinking the big bulky nappy was just really uncomfortable i changed him into a huggies. This settled him for 5 minutes and then he started rolling around clutching his tummy and crying, after 20 minutes (just when i was about to call Alan and take him to the after hours doctor) he fell asleep.
I have no idea if this is another one of his delay tactics for sleep or if he actually had a sore tummy - it may be because he is hungry too because he STILL isn't eating his dinner. I swear this problem is getting bigger and bigger and we are just stumped as to what to do. If anyone has any ideas of fail safe meals or getting toddlers to bed without all the antics we would really love the advice!
