    Big Red: yep the book says routines are just a guide, especially with toddlers.

    Perhaps. What's going on?

    I have gone from a little man that slept 7am to 7pm with at least a 2 hour nap during the day to a DS that won't go to sleep until at the earliest 10pm wakes 2-5 times a night chucking hysterical temper tantrums, coming into our bed to sleep and wakes around 6.30am. And to top it off he doesn't have his day sleep anymore. He is grumpy all day as he is tired. The worst thing is nothing in his life has changed. I'm exhausted and he is too the poor thing. I just want to get him to sleep so he has the rest he needs.

    Hmm... Sounds like your DS still needs a nap. With trial and error try different times until you find one that works. Im guessing around 1:30 if your DS wakes at 7. With the night wakings I'd say be strict. No talking, no light, no TV, no bringing DS into your bed. It only takes 2-3 times before waking due to a specific reason (teeth etc) becomes waking due to habit/comfort provided.

    Easier said that done I know.... Good luck.

    What do you do of an evening before bed?

    My son stopped day napping at 26 months and was an absolute nightmare on and off for at least 6 months. He is now 34 months and his behaviour has just gone back to good now in the last month or so.

    Routine is Dinner
    30 mins TV while I clean up after dinner.
    Play time with Daddy when he gets home from work at 6.30pm for 30 mins
    teeth brushing
    Stories for 20 mins
    Kiss good night walk out 7.30pm

    This is when it starts I'm hungry, I'm thirsty, I just did number 2s in my nappy, I'm not tired, usually at least one temper tantrum he will drop off to sleep anywhere from 10pm
    to 11pm

    Then throughout the night he wakes up crying which again will turn into a hysterical temper tantrum waking everyone in our house. Every night without fail he comes into our bed and climbs in sometimes without us knowing until he wakes crying.

    It is exhausting :-(

    I think you need to move the routine forward by an hour.

    It's tough, been there with my son!

    I even considered calling in a consultant at the time for the first time in nearly 5 years of parenting!

    Have you tried calling tresilian?
