for about a month or two, I started a new bedtime routine with my son who is soon going to be 2. We changed him to a toddler bed.

I love your routine, trixie. I'm curious- have you ever dealt with one of your children coming out of their room/bed numerous times a night? If so, how did you deal with it?

DD still comes out maybe once every couple of months. The first time we ask what is the problem she tells us. We try to resolve it and tell her its nigh time go back to bed.

I also wanted to say I personally can never sleep. I grew up falling asleep watching tv. DH can just say he wants to go to sleep close his eyes and he is asleep. I can never do that its really difficult for me to sleep. When I wake up its tough for me to go back to sleep.
I wanted my kids to have better sleep habits then me. I think routine and diet plays a big role.
