I'm in need of some ideas.
I'm at my wits end.
My (just) 2yr old has always been a terrible sleeper.
I'm a single parent with 100% care.
When my mum puts her down for a sleep, no problems, if she has a sleep when spending time with her dad, no problems but me trying to get her down?! Massive dramas.
Every nap (unless she's in the car) and every evening is a nightmare that can take up 1.5hrs and usually ends in me losing my sh*t and yelling and her crying.
She always tired when I try and put her down (but not over tired)but she just keeps mucking up. She wants another story, she wants a drink, she wants to hold my hand. She's up, she's down, arms up, bum up, sitting up, playing with teddy, legs up on the wall. Drama drama drama.
I lose my mind, yell, storm out, she cries, I go back in she lies in bed for a second and then starts all over again.
I can't leave until she falls asleep otherwise the water works start again.
What do I do? I'm so over it being such a bunfight every night trying to get her to sleep.
