Sleep has been one of the biggest issues of my son's life. He's now 2 years, four months old and his current issue is that he will nap for everyone but me. He goes to two different sitters during my workweek and they say he is a champion sleeper who falls asleep in 5 min or less for them. If my husband, who works nights, happens to come home for his nap, the two of them snuggle up and fall asleep very quickly. It doesn't work that way with me. He tosses and turns, sings, asks questions, plays, has to go potty, needs water, says, "mom! mom! mom! mom!" - all sorts of things except sleep. Sometimes at nighttime (I put him to bed at night), it can take an hour and a half to put him to bed. It never takes less than an hour for him to fall asleep for me. I've asked them all about their routines and tried to follow them as precisely as I can. Nothing doing. This kid just won't sleep for me. I'm starting to really feel like a bad mother. How come everyone can get this kid to sleep but me? I've tried EVERYTHING. Every possible sleep strategy and nothing works for me. Everyone else just lies down next to him, either facing him or facing away, and the kid just zonks out. Once last week, he fell asleep for his sitter in 45 seconds flat. It's NEVER happened for me once. What am I doing wrong?!
