    She wouldnt last a week of screaming, once she knows her screaming wont get her the nighty she wont bother putting in the effort. Its worth one week of hell than years of a child who has learnt to use her voice volume to get what she wants.

    She won't wear anything with the nightie. She hits, bites and screams. It's just an awful way to end the day. I'm over it.
    she wakes when I put covers over her. She pushes them off. I put them back on. She wakes right up and starts carrying on. It's exhausting.

    Have to agree with VicPark. It may suck to deal with, but she won't keep it up forever.

    Id get rid of the nightie and simply get out the pj's you want her to wear each night. Stick to your guns.

    My girls dont like slippers but love those slipper sock things with the black non slip soles
    Oh we have tried being very firm. She is just so ..... What's the word..... Stubborn....difficult....a pain in the ****!
    sometimes we just have no energy left for her tantrums of an evening. I know this sounds bad.
    i guess we should persist but when the two of them are awake and screaming it really gets to is all and is very unpleasant.

    Believe me, I get this. My DD is 2, she does exactly the same. I dress her after she goes to sleep - she won't have a blanket or anything in her bed. She wakes up in the night and throws her socks at me, that's why we went to the onesie. It's exhausting & distressing I know! We are lucky it isn't too cold here yet. Can you buy a small oil heater?

    I honestly don't know if I could put up with a week of screwing of an evening.
    She already knows her voice volume gets her what she wants.

    It's easy to say 'enough if the softy softy approach', until you are the parent dealing with it night after night, unable to calm them, getting bitten/hit, worried sick about them being freezing at night. there is only so hard you can be on a little kid.

    My DD (is 4) sounds as determined as yours and I agree it's exhausting. I'm sure being a police negotiator would be easier than dealing with her some days.
    People don't believe me till they've seen her in action she is an angel 90% of the time but that 10% devil ruins the rest.
    If it were me I'd give her the option of nightie on top of pjs or not at all, guaranteeing a massive tantrum. I stick to my guns and she eventually comes around.
    Good luck
