19 month old - trouble sleeping Lock Rss

my daughter is such a live wire and doesn't want to miss out on anything that i am having trouble getting her to sleep.

the day time sleep bocomes a screaming match and in the end i put her in ther car and she sleeps in the car seat.

at night , i can't get her to sleep before 10.00 pm and them she wakes up and she wants to sleep in our bed( small house - shares our room)

i am having a few problems with my husband , as we disagree on plan of action.

please can you suggest a solution.

already tried a sleep clinic and well i have had no luck.

Hi,
If you really want to change what’s happening then you are going to have to take control and as tough as it will be, so is what you are doing now.

Putting in the car to sleep is what she now associates with going to sleep and this will need to change. Also going to bed at 10pm will have to change and so will letting her into your bed as she also associates going back to sleep with your comfort.

All these things make it very confusing for babies about where and how they should sleep.

You will need to have a regular routine of dinner bath 2 stories and bed by 7.30pm.

If she is still in her cot you should follow the techniques we teach for 6 to 12 month old babies
Having her in your room makes it harder, as she will protest you putting her back into her bed/cot.
Keep in mind that an overtired baby or toddler is harder to settle and you should start to settle her as soon as she displays tired signs during the day and at night.

You can get details for our settling program from <a href="http://www.huggies.com/au/pregnancy_parenting/yourbabysleep/">Your Baby’s Sleep</a> page or from
