For already mothers

So my son is 7 months, every since he was 2 months he slept through the night. He still does. He usually goes to sleep about 10 or 10:30. And sleeps till 9 in the morning. But lately when we go to put him to sleep. He wakes up 3 times. Then after 3 tries of getting him back to sleep. He's out for the night. No he still doesn't know how to self soothe . we tried one night to let him go to sleep on his own.. He cried until he choked on his throw up. So of course that didn't go as planned. He also sleeps in our room. I feel like he senses us when we go to bedroom to finally go to sleep. That's one of the times he wakes up. I know this is long. But I'm just trying to see if any of y'all experienced this and knew what to do .

My son will be 2 years old in April and has always been the same. In order for him to go to sleep either me or his dad have to be laying down with him or just in the same room. He also senses when he is alone and wont go to sleep. He will also cry till he throws up. And I cant figure out what to do either. But I have heard many kids that do that. They are just more comfortable and feel safe with someone there. I know at times it can be time consuming and frustrating. But I just have to keep thinking that there will come a time when they wont want us to be around them as much so I cherish it while I can. I hope you can find something that works for you!

Well see the thing is he sleeps better when we're not in the room with him. And we can't sleep in a different room because as of now we're living with one of my fiance's relatives. So I'm thinking when we find a place we'll get a w bedroom and hopefully that'll fix the problem ? I don't know. I just feel that when we go in the room he knows we're up So he wants to be up and play with momma and daddy.

Oh yeah that's rough. He did that for a little bit and we were living at his nanas house so we put and mini crib mattress in a playpen and when we would go to sleep we would just put him to sleep in that and put it right outside our bedroom door. It worked pretty good. He will eventually learn when its time to be asleep and when to be awake. We used to have to keep him up all day with no naps just so he would sleep at night.
