    So it actually works?

    And routine of night time is
    5:30-6 dinner
    6:30-7 bath
    7:30-8 relax time with bottle and her favourite Peppa pig show
    8-9:30 trying to get to her to sleep by getting her into my bed and cuddling her till she falls asleep..
    That's if my parents are being quiet enough outside because if she can hear their voices she wants to go out to them
    What about the day nap? This is key to making night bed time easier.

    I would give milk (not in a bottle but that's for another thread) no later than 7. Give your child 1/2 hour of independent Play after finishing the milk drink. Then bed.

    To be honest I would start cracking the whip. Put your daughter to sleep in her own bed. The same time every night. Stay with her cuddling for 10 minutes or so if needed. Stop cuddling to sleep. Sing the same song/ give the same special cuddle every night. Do things exactly the same. Be prepared for some protest but stick with it: it can take up to a week for a new routine to take effect.

    She doesn't wake up at all during the night
    Except for when she's in her bed and she wonders into my room around 5:30 in the morning but falls straight back to sleep

    Put your child to bed where you intend her to wake (in her own bed?). If your tot falls asleep in one place, with a sleep aid (being patted/cuddled to sleep) then when the heaviest part of the sleep is over (after 8 hours etc) then if your tot wakes between sleep cycles she will think "wtf... Where am I.. Why aren't I being cuddled?" And that's why the wandering into your room at 5:30.

    It is crazy hard!!!!!

    Whatever you do stuck with it - you need to be consistent and change can take time.

    We aim to have our son asleep by the 7pm bus.

    It would be hard with other people in the house though. I don't envy you.

    Yea I need to because there's some nights me and my partner get no Us time we just fall asleep from being so exhausted...

    And she still has formula (another thing I know I shouldn't be doing at her age) but she doesn't like real milk unless it's got flavouring and I'm not one to give her things like that..

    I'd just follow what the other ladies have said, be consistent and it should work. I have to start this as soon as I'm on maternity leave.

    My dd is nearly 3 and I'm six months pregnant and she is doing the same, EXCEPT she wakes maybe twice a night, sometimes more.

    I sympathise.
