Controlled crying method

Morning doctor

Okay, so now I have moved his bed back to his room as you advised me yesterday. How do I go about the controlled crying method? Where do I start and how does it work?

This is really outrageous - last night by 11 he was back into our bed. This way we get some sort of sleep in, but really, I feel his place is not in my bed at night. He was so " grown-up"  about the whole situation when we moved him out to his own room and bed when he turned 1 year old.

Please re-assure me that this normal or else I will have to look for a problem somewhere. And as I said, he is so happy at school and at home as well. I might add that he has no problem sleeping during the day - at school and over weekends.

Thank you so much doctor - cant wait to hear from you.

Enjoy your evening.

Please look up the contolled crying method on the internet. Your son is just behaving as any child would who had developed the very satsfying habit of getting into a nice warm bed with his parents at night.
