Toddler issues


As posted earlier the issues that we are facting are impacting my toddler. He is 2.5years old and will not sleep through the night he will keep waking and looking for me. How do I comfort him and assure that we are there and will always be there for him, that no one is leaving him. I have lost count of the number of times he wakes at night. He has not slept through the night except for a brief 2 week period but lately it is worse than ever and the only thing that has happened lately is our relationship issues.

Please help me help him which will put us both as ease?

You can only reassure your son as much as possible. It will help to put a nightlight in his room.It may also help to consult a child psychologist at this stage as your son is very unsettled. He would benefit a lot from play therapy as a start.Try him on Rescue remedy at night and if this does not help him to sleep and to calm him, it may be necessary to try Melatonin 3mg at night. Melatonin is a natural hormone in the body.
