3 weeks ago, our 2yr old decided she no longer wanted to sleep in the cot, she wanted to sleep in the big bed. So we moved her. Since then she will not go to sleep unless one of us is in the room with her. She is also waking up to 4 times per night and again, wont go to sleep unless we are in the room with her otherwise she will SCREAM and get out of bed. We are at our witts end as before this she would go to sleep on her own and never wake (or at least wake us) during the night. It was suggested that we put her back in the cot and what a disaster that was! The only way we can get an undisturbed nights sleep is to allow her to sleep in our bed or to sleep on a mattress on our floor. We need help as we are exhausted and work full time and she is starting to misbehave as she is not getting enough sleep.
