It all started when she was around 2 where she would fall asleep while having her night time cuddle with mummy, them mum would put her to bed. That routine got stuck and she will not go to bed on her good will. We have just been trying recently to send her to bed before she falls asleep on the couch but it seems like she sees it like a punishment for not going to sleep on the couch.
She kicks up a HUGE fuss after we say it and when we carry her to bed and kiss her goodnight she will stay there for a minute or 2 but she is screaming the whole time and walks out to the lounge demanding to sleep on the couch.
We cant go out at night cause of this and it is impacting on our social life. Really need to get her to bed before she starts kindy at least.
Oh one more thing, 95% of the time she wakes up during the night and plants herself in our bed and dad is forced to sleep in her bed as she will carry on as above if we try and put her to her bed.
