i had little sleep in the past days, the problem? my toddler don't like to sleep. he only sleeps for two hours in the middle of the night and awake all day. what do i do? he babbles a lot but no word yet which makes it harder. yesterday at 10pm, he's been chuckling and babbling in our room with no signs of weariness. and he likes to be carried a lot though i never encourage it. to make matters worst, all these are being pinned on me by my wife. is there a way out of this? please help!

Does he take naps during the day? If so, they should be cut out to make him nice and sleepy at a reasonable time. Or you can give him a nice warm bath before bed. That sometimes makes kids sleepy too. It really all depends on the days activities and how much sleep he is getting during the day. Sometimes what I do with my kids I run around with them for about 2 hrs then let them sit for about 10 minutes then start getting ready for bed. Usually they are out pretty fast.

I tried this but do i always have to do that? i'm an old man and he's too fast for me. but it works. will he ever adjust?
