For a few days Nolan was having a hard time getting to sleep and even waking up and crying in the middle of the night a few times. This is very rare (yes, we are lucky) and we didn't know what to do. So we bribed him.
We removed all of his special friends and told him if he did a good job sleeping and not crying when it was time to go to bed or in the middle of the night for 5 days in a row we'd get him a pillow.
Bribery works. Here he is, proud as can be, with his little pillow. I'm praying he actually falls asleep today with the pillow in his bed and that it's not just another distraction.
