d) - took up some calpol and juice, gave him both (he was very pleased wit himself for getting the calpol) and a cuddle and he lay down fine.
All was quiet for 10 minutes and now he "wants a huggy" again. With intermittent (sleepy) crying
Part of me says - oh FGS woman get up there and give him a hug to fall asleep, he's under the weather.
The other part says - the reason he wants a huggy to go to sleep now is because I lay in his bed the other night with him and gave him a huggy to go to sleep this afternoon - and he's going to get to expect it.
With DH coming home on Moday the last thing we're going to need is DS3's bedtime routine f*cked up.
