Was wondering if anyone had experienced the same and could advise on what is going on or how to fix it...
I have a 2.5yo who has for the most part always gone down easily at night, even been happy about it even though she'd occasionally try to stay up later. Over the last week she is suddenly getting very upset about going to bed, bottom lip coming out, screaming/crying to come back out, very unlike her. If I let her go she will fall asleep within about 5mins but if she happens to wake thru the night the same thing happens and she screams again as she does not want to get back into her bed. Can't deal with the night waking tantrums as I'm 6mths pregnant and already up every 2hrs or so going to the loo! Hubby is a crap sleeper too so if he wakes up with her screaming he can't get back to sleep.
This came on very suddenly and is very out of character for her. Whilst I know other parents have worse problems, this is driving us nuts as she already goes to bed late as it is (8-8.30) and all this means that she's getting to bed even later and hence my night time relax time is minimal. I need my me-time!!
She is still in a cot and has a day sleep most days which she goes down without too much trouble. Just don't know what's happening with the night sleeps. She doesn't say she's scared or anything so don't think it's monsters or scared of the dark....
Can anyone help???
