Baba hasn’t been great at sleeping for a long time now! It started last year when Rhianna died, and we managed to get him nearly back to normal and then his Uncle Dave died and he was very scared at this point! He didn’t like Daddy going to work, he didn’t like being left and the nightmares started.
Ever since then he has been really bad at sleeping, he hasn’t wanted to be left and he has generally always ended up in our bed and going to sleep with one of us next to him. We tried to use school as I tool to get him back to sleep in his own room, but that didn’t work and just resulted in screaming, crying and Baba constantly coming out of his room, and some nights a nearly three-hour bed time.
It was hell!
