Hi, My DD is 2 1/2 yrs old and has been waking up nearly every night between midnight and 2am wanting to sleep with me and her dad. She has been doing this for the past 6 mnths but i just take her back and sit outside untill she falls asleep. But when she is sleeping at her grandmothers house, she never wakes at all. It seems that i have to exhaust her, just so she can sleep all night.
Can you please help me as im pregnant with number 3 and its getting harder.
Firstly she MUST fall asleep in her bed on her own so when she wakes later on her light sleep(as we all do) then she can look around and is exactly where and how she went to sleep and resettles herself again. It`s a habit now and she also expects you to sit outside the door. When she gets up keep putting her back over and over again, let her know it`s time to sleep and leave.
I hope this helps
