My 3 1/2 year old son randomly stays awake for 20-24 hours at a time with no nap. He's not crabby or fighting his sleep, he's just simply awake! Help!

Never heard of that: surprises me that he really can go that long with no sleep . must be getting some deep rest in that period . Most important would be his behaviors. most kids who do not get enough sleep are extremely irritable and fussy and hyper. Make sure there is no caffeine in his diet and that includes chocolate. Hopefully just a phase and he will get back to good solid night sleeping for 10 -11 hours. ...Read more

Sleep hygeine: While it is not at all unusual for babies and infants to fight sleep, you still should work with them to establish a sleep routine and expectations about their sleep. What they learn about sleep now will likely affect their sleep habits for a lifetime. Especially at end of day, have a very specific routine to prepare for bed, then no tv, movies, etc to coerce sleep. Quiet room, quiet sleep! ...Read more
