My dd who is 2 yrs 8 months is exactly the same it's exhausting.
I have found the last few nights that if I lie with her for a while then say I'm going to go have a bath then ill come back and lie with her again and she has said okay. Then I have gone and had a bath and she has waited patiently and by the time I've come back she's been asleep both times.... Fingers crossed it keeps working cause I'm knakered. Never had this trouble with my ds... He just goes to bed easy ( he is almost 4).

We got my 2 year old a double bed and lay beside him while he falls asleep. About 30mins now. Then shut the door and don't really hear from him the rest of the night. If he does wake over night we just lay beside him and he goes back to sleep. It works for us.

I used to have a big bed time battle with dd as well.
So I changed our routine a bit and added a bedtime story just one story and then I would start off by sitting on the floor at the end of her bed with my back to her then I would sit further away from her every couple of days until I was able to walk straight out of the room after the story.
This seemed to solve my problem and I could then have my own quiet time in the evenings. Its hard work to begin with but now we have no problem at bed time.
