I personally dont find that removal of privelages works for my kids at this age. She's screaming because she wants mummy, mummy says no ipad for a week, she doesnt give a sh!t about the ipad right now, because right now she just wants mummy. She will worry about the ipad tomorrow I also did the pop in & out method, & now I will tell DD a story (usually in the loungeroom,so I am only with her in her room for a short time), do teeth, & tuck her into bed. She can have a couple of books in her bed if she wants, we have lullaby music on, & we leave the hallway light on. I say 'I just need to do xyz & will come back when I'm done'. I'll return 15 mins later & she's usually asleep. Night wakings I will lay with her for a minute,but have also put a mattress on the floor next to my bed when she went through a 'nightmare' phase. I've also done audio stories before when she has trouble settling her mind for sleep.
