does he talk well enough yet to tell you why he's scared? my son went through a short phase of being scared to sleep in his room. I had his stuffed puppy scare everything away every night and protect him and that seemed to work for him.
November 14, 2012 at 11:09 AMAnyone else have any ideas?

Sorry I've never had these issues. :( Sounds rough. Here's a bump and good luck!

At around this age, we had monsters and bears. I sprayed the room down with monster repellant (water in a spray bottle), and a family friend took the bears home with him... worked like a champ...

You need to be firm and patient. He should be able to tell you what is freaking him out. If he's having nightmares, go to the pediatrician bc he could have night terrors. If he's just freaking out and it's a phase, then just keep the approach that we're big now and we sleep in our own bed. I don't know that I would chang his crib out bc it might scare him more.
Have you talked ot him about why he screams as soon as you leave? Sounds like an overactive imagination to me, scaring him a little bit. I gave Caden his own flashlight and for a while he had a squirt bottle (with a little water). He could "Squirt" the monsters away :) :).
