Christopher fusses all night long it seems and it's almost as if he isn't in a deep sleep cause he fusses for me and always wants to tell me something or needs something. He has a great bed, night lights, etc. We have a bedtime routine, same stuff every night. I don't get it, but I am loosing so much sleep running to the other end of the trailer 3-4x a night to see what he needs/wants or why he's fussing. What can I do? I don't want to close his door because we're working on night time PTing.

How old is he? Recently in the last 3-6 months my son will go through phases where he wants to wake up a lot at night and come to my room, or fight me to go to sleep. I have to use a reward system with him. If he stays in bed all night and goes to bed when he's supposed to we stop and get him breakfast of his choosing. That's what he likes and what works for us.

This! I do something similar like this.. If he goes to bed without getting up a few times. The earlier we get to go outside when we wake up! lol

By any chance .. is he kicking his legs a lot? He could be going through Growing Pains or he may be having Restless Leg Syndrome. My son is going through the same right now. We have a Dr's appointment tomorrow to check his iron levels (for the RLS).
