My 2.5yr old son has been sick recently with an upper respiratory tract infection. He developed external manifestations of the infection and this meant his ears became very very red and very swollen and painful. It is all pretty much cleared up now and he is feeling much better (thank god! - poor little baby). However since he has recovered he will go to sleep in his own bed but wake up after a few hours and won't go back to sleep in his own bed. For the past few nights he has slept with my husband and I and is so restless that I cannot sleep. In the past 3 days, I have had a total of 5 hours sleep and I'm exhausted!
Does anyone know how to get him past this point? He gets hysterical if we try and settle him into his own bed so for his own sanity we have let him sleep with us. I need more rest though as I'm 27 weeks pregnant and exhausted without this added pressure.
Please help. Thanks for any replies.
