He can sleep through but 3-5 nights a week he will wake up early, between 2-4 o'clock and get into our bed and wriggle for about 2 hours.

When i put him back into his bed, he will try and get back to ours a few times and then settles back to sleep.

Problem is it usually happens midweek and we have to be up at 5, so not a lot of sleep for adults. Ds can sleep in till 8.

Its almost like a habit and its driving me crazy.

He looks tired at school, poor boy. What can i do to change it.
Everything else is fine, no problem going to sleep.
The other children sleep through, but this one has got me flummoxed.

Have you tried wake to sleep? I think that's what it's called. Wake him at about 1 - fully wake and settle again. Search wake to sleep in the archives to make sure I've got it right though
