My son just turned one and I am still finding it very difficult to put him to sleep. Every time I tell him it's ni ni's time, he gets really upset and starts to cry. He does this both wtih his afternoon naps and his night time sleep. I usually put him in his cot and let him cry for five minutes until he eventually goes to sleep. It is very distressing for me! I don't understand why he doesn't want to go to sleep as he always shows signs that he needs to go to sleep(yawning, rubbing his eyes). What can I do, so that he can go to sleep on his own without crying, once I have placed him in his cot?
