We made him feel good by giving him stamps on his hand and we took a trip to target and toys r us and got him what he's been asking for (buzz light years blaster gun). So now he poops in the toilet when he needs to and he progressed to telling us when he needs to. I guess part of it all was us being impatient with him. Cause we just didn't want him pooping in his underwear anymore.

That's major. Congrats! Don't be too hard on the kid when he decides one day whatever he's playing with is too important to stop and has an accident. Happened plenty of times with my son.

Man my lil boy is a line pusher.

Hes been staying up later and later everyday.

Hes 17 months, acting like hes in his terrible twos.

Tonight, he wouldn't go to sleep after 3 consecutive days of staying up late, waking up early and no naps.

Lil vato was crying his *** off like if he was hurt, but only wants me to hold him and not his mom. Tried to comfort her on why he wants me but she aint feelin it.

Any advice to get him to sleep early and have the wife feeling better?

Are you guys taking him out?
is he home all day?
does he nap alot during the day?


We never had this issue with our daughter. We would turn off all the lights when she would sleep with us and got her to understand that its bed time when the lights are off. Just get him into a routine that will have him asleep by 7-8pm.

For getting him asleep, if he's not already getting plenty of physical play time try to find an activity for him to do that requires him to move/run around. He's gotta get that play out

 

As far as wifey goes she has to understand that it's not an attack or lack of love but just a phase. You really can't tell her that straight up cause she might take offense to it so I'd just try to subtly get your son to give mama stuff, doesn't have to be gifts but bring her anything just to keep the interactions up. even if you just fold a sheet of paper and write "I love Mama" on  it and have him scribble on it, have him deliver it and her heart'll melt

My daughter's 18 months and this is her right now. She used to have a hard bed time of 8pm but it's getting to a point where we struggle for two hours getting her to stop crying and stay in her bed to sleep at night.

Hes with my mother in law all day and she gets him out the house everyday.

When we get home we play a good chunk of the night and he eats good all day.

Even with a full belly he wont always go to sleep, late night early morning + plenty of playtime and rarley will go to sleep before 9.

We had him at a set bed time at 7:30-8 for a good while.



Yeah ill definitely do the letter thing for my wife from our son. I usually have him hand her a dozen flowers but ill incorporate something he did next time.


He ended uo going to sleep around 12:30 am after playing in the tub, couple oz's of milk and a dose of Tylenol. We chalked it up to him being tired and teething.

my son goes to sleep before 10 and we wake him up to get ready in the morning around 630. even if we turn off the lights and get into bed at 8, he just lays there and talks/sings/fidgets for more than an hour before sleeping. he takes a nap at preschool and one time i went to pick him up early and all the kids were already awake and he was on his mat snoring. on the weekend, he sometimes sleeps in until past 8 if we let him.

this man knows. right now my son is on his "mommy is my best friend" trip and when my wife tries to say what about your daddy or something else nice, i tell her no need to do that laugh.gif at this point, it doesn't hurt my feelings.
