My 3yo and 5yo share a room, 5yo has always been very good at going to sleep. 3 yo is getting progressively worse
He jumps around, plays up more water mummy another kiss mummy need a kiss from daddy etc etc and whilst I know its not the best we end up giving in to a certain amount of demands and then getting a bit annoyed just to try and stop him quickly as my 5yo starts getting upset at being disturbed whilst going to sleep. Vicious circle I know.
How do you manage the endless say goodnight, leave the room, they howl, come and find you, you put them back to bed etc etc whilst your children are sharing a room?
We have no other room. And if we put 5yo to sleep in our room for a few nights and sit it out I fear 5 yo will get attached to sleeping in our room! (he loves a routine and is fabulously, if slightly annoyingly in this case, adaptable )
