My one year old hates his cot despite sleeping in it since he was 3 months old. Whenever we put him down for the night he goes wild, eventually falling over asleep. While he's doing this we leave him alone and pop our heads around the door every few minutes to check he's OK.
Day time napping is worse as he doesn't eventually fall asleep. He'll only have a nap in his pram or car seat. We're expecting baby 2 in 6 months and desperately trying to train him into a nap in his bed... Anyone got any ideas on how to get past this cot rage?
My DD hated her cot and refused to lay down in it, clinging to the bars, screaming. I moved her into a toddler bed at about 14 or 15 months and she's slept much better since then, she obviously just grew to hate the bars.
