2 year old suddenly waking up at night.
My son is normally the best at sleeping through the night and he is on a great schedule. He is usually in bed by 9:00 and wakes up at almost 8:00. He has been known to sleep in until 9:00 which can make it hard for me to get him to take his afternoon nap. The past few night he has woken up in the middle of the night and stays up for hours in his crib (he just plays and giggles the whole time) then he sleeps in super late and will not take his afternoon nap. Last night I heard him in there at 4 am and he never went back to bed. He was in there laughing until 7:45 when I went to get him. He is now taking a four hour afternoon nap to compensate. I don't know why he is waking up when he should be really tired at night since he is missing his afternoon naps because of this. Any ideas? Ican't sleep either when I hear him talking and laughing all night long!
