    DS is 3 in February & sleeps for around 2 hours a day.

    He goes to bed just after 7:30pm and wakes up around 6:30am.

    DS1 is 3.5. He goes down at 8pm and either faffs around for ages or falls straight asleep. He gets up anywhere between 7-8am. He has a nap once or twice a week for anywhere from an hour to three hours.

    Dd1 is 3.5yo and sleeps 7.30/8pm-5.30/6am and 1.5-3hrs during the day.

    But she has a strict food diet after midday.

    Between 10 and 12 hours overnight. no day sleeps.

    i would work towards ditching the day sleep, and hope it leads to earlier bedtime. No tv, just read or sit with her til she falls asleep.

    My only advice would be to bring her day forward. My DS (3yo on monday) sleeps are 7.30pm bed time, sleeps til around 6.30-7am (usually until DD wakes him up), nap at noon (sharp) til around 2.30pm.

    If your DD is only waking at 3pm , she may not be tired by 7pm. If my kids (yes my almost 5yo DD still naps) sleep any later than 2.30pm they are a night mare at bed time.

    Do you have a regular bed time routine? Dinner, bath/shower, story, bed?
    Good luck.

    My dd1 is 3&3/4 and sleeps 7.30-6.30/7ish. My dd2 is nearly 2.5 and sleeps 7.30 - 7/7.30. No day naps here. Dd2 dropped them at 22 months and didn't sleep thru till we did. I find 11-12 hours total sleep at this age in my experience.

    My DS 3.5 goes to bed at 8.00pm if he has had a nap or goes to bed at 7.00-7.30pm if he doesn't have a nap. If he has a nap, which is about 2-2.5 hrs he will not fall asleep so quick, but knows to stay in bed playing quietly with his cars, but eventually he will konk out about 45mins-1hr later. If he hasn't napped, he will konk out in about 5 mins. I've never had to use a baby gate, just lucky he adapted to bedtime. BUT he will wake up at 5.30am-6.00am every day. I'm lucky if he gets past 6.30am.

    My ds is exactly the same! He normally goes to bed at 6-6.30 tho.

    DD is 3.5 years old and sleeps from 7pm until 6am. No day sleeps for over a year. I think she would be less tired and more energetic if she slept 12hrs overnight, but she obviously disagrees!!

    It's so frustrating when they are exhausted but just won't sleep. We went through it for quite a while when DD dropped her nap around 2yrs old. It was horrible, so you have my sympathy. FWIW I would bring bed time forward a bit as she sounds so overtired.
