My first post so I am hoping to get some replies! My 4 1/2 year old boy is frequently waking at night again. This started in early December and has got progressively worse. He's ok going to bed and we have a good bedtime routine that seems to work for him and his brother (2). It's the middle of the night that's the problem. He wakes and won't go back to bed - we take him back frequently but he won't stay there. He can be awake 3 + hours. It's exhasting till we eventually give in and bring him in bed with us - he won't even sleep then for some time afterwards as he seems very awake after all the upset. Need some suggestions that may help but have to avoid lot's of upset and noise as I don't want to wake his younger brother who has only just got the sleeping at night time thing himself!
