My three year old has suddenly turned into a horrible sleeper!
She had been amazing since birth (sleeping through 11-12 hours since 8 weeks, asking to go to bed, never refusing sleep, 2 naps a day until two years old etc etc)
Since just after turning three her sleeping has turned to sh1t!
She used to go to bed at 6.30 but his has been pushed to 7pm. She makes numerous excuses (like fill up water bottle, fix blanket, light on, door open, toilet etc) and screams until daddy (God help me if I go in instead!) goes in! He had resorted to lying next to her at times.
Some nights she isn't falling asleep until 8.30pm and despite her gro clock being set for 6.15 she will wake anywhere from 5am, turn her light on and whinge the house down consequently waking us (and her little sister!)
Doesn't matter if she has a nap during the day or not, nights are the same. I have put off nighttime toilet training because of this.
The last few nights she has now started to whine and cry numerous times throughout the night (literally last night she had 4 hours sleep total and still woke at 6am- no day sleep yesterday). We are at our wits ends.
Any tips, advice, strategies or reward system recommendations would be great!! X
