comment How long can a 3-month-old go without eating?
@luckiestMom: your nickname says it all! It took our son more than 13 months until he could sleep through a whole night. So enjoy your sleep. // at Torben: not only mothers envy her for that, there's also sleepless fathers. ;-)

We had similar problems, maybe my experience or the answers do also help you: see parenting.stackexchange.com/questions/2209/… Good Luck!

+1 for making me laugh by "I tried to eat his candy" (I fear that would not do any good to the problem. ;-))

comment How should we cope with 12 month old waking in the night?
how was it the time before? Did he always wake up several times in the night and you finally want to stop it, or is this waking up new? (Our son stopped waking up several times a night with about 14 months, if I remember correctly, the time before was very hard.)

comment Should we change a wet diaper and risk triggering a night tantrum or leave our son be?
"urine is sterile" - at first, there is for sure no problem with health, but if the child's skin is wet for hours, I think it will get red and very irritated.

Diaper + wet sheets - also happens often to us. If the child has drunk too much before going to sleep it can happen that the diaper can not sponge all the fluid, so the bed can get really wet (despite diapers).

comment What consequences are appropriate for pre-teens?
@nGinius: that's what I also thought. Excellent point, as we really on very hard "protest days" have the problem that there are not enough privileges to take away. Hm.

comment How to ensure that necessary things get done when time is short?
ok, we do that already. Normally when he is ready for going to bed we'll read a book or story together and this is only "possible" until the end of reading time. If he delays the necessary steps before, there is no time for reading left any more.

"Stop letting him control the night-time schedule". So what would you suggest for forcing him to brush his teeth (or let me do it) instantly?

comment How to ensure that necessary things get done when time is short?
thanks for your answer! Solution A (wake up earlier and suggest attractive thing AFTER routines is what I wanted to do, but we were too late that day). But that's the only solution I'm seeing at the moment.

that's why I chose the tooth brushing as an example: the consequence of cancelling it would be too late for him to understand. What would you suggest for teeth brushing as a "negative outcome"?
