Mom of a 2 yr 4 m old boy

Q. My baby is not sleeping at night for past 2 days. I follow the normal routine of feeding him then changing his diaper and then turning the lights off but he doesn't want to sleep and gets down from the bed. After few mins he would want me to pick him up n get on bed and then again he will get down from bed. If I try to make him sleep then he starts crying our loudly. If I let him play on his own then also he starts crying. M not sure what to do. I have a job to do n it becomes tiring for me also I am worried about his constant screams n cries. He keeps on screaming if he doesn't get what he wants.

A. Yes I do sing songs for him.. and try to tell him stories but he constantly wants to run or walk or get out of bed. Also I tried massaging oil on his head but he doesn't sit for that as well. Then I let him play or wander in the room but he starts crying again after few minutes. Not sure what does he wants and why he screams so loud.

A. Just sing a song or tell him a very simple story when on bed. Also, buy him a sleep buddy that is a soft toy to hold and sleep. This will encourage him to sleep. Also, at this age children are like this so give him some time. And after you get back from work make sure to play with him for a while. this will reduce his irritability.

A. It happens with babies at this stage all you need is to massage regularly on the head of your baby for 15 minutes like we do champi to pit the baby to sleep
