comment What's an effective way to deal with toddler transition tantrums (“I don't want to stop yet?”)
We have too been using a timer (the one in our "smart"-phones since we didn't have anything else around the first time). The response has been very good. Our daughter (almost 3) is OK even when going home from the park, which used to be a major problem. Now, she asks for it, even when we never used the timer before. And even if she says "one more round" we often add one minute and we are done with it. Also, going over the routine or the next steps after the timer greatly helps: eg. "What are we doing now? Where are we going? What's there?"

Just one quick question: why don't you simply give him the milk/formula he claims?

comment Why won't my toddler sleep when her mother tries to put her in bed?
Hi, my mother did the same with me: at some point when I was a toddler she left me in my room crying, I did it for the night, then I fell asleep. This is what I am told, at least. After that, I started going to bed fairly easily. Given that, I would use that as very last resort. Also, that would really work in my climate, since it's too cold :) Thanks!

Hi, when I bring her to (her) bed which happens in 2 ways: I can start from the beginning and it doesn't take long or I can take over once my wife has tried, and it won't take long either starting from that point on. I usually don't take her to our bed, but it may happen from time to time that we play on the bed together before going to bed, I would say it has happened a couple of times. Thanks!
