Hi all, I have a just turned 2 year old that all of a sudden won't go to sleep. She will sit up in bed crying and screaming etc. I've tried to leave her for a bit and then return over and over again, but the crying just escalates, I've tried sitting by her bed and that took 2 hours for her to fall sleep, I don't want her to get used to this though as she used to sleep really well and besides a time of midnight terrors, never had a problem. Now I just don't know what to do, My 6 month old son shares the room and if he is asleep then he normally sleeps through most of it but if he isn't then her crying edges him on as it were and he starts crying louder and louder. With children that are only 18 months apart you'll understand that by the end of the day I am knackered and patience is unfortunately not one of my strong points.
Please help! I cannot get her to lie down never mind sleep.
Secondly, does anyone have a 2 year old that has turned really whingy and moaning all of a sudden? My daughter cries for anything and everything - frustraion, tired, not getting her own way or for anything.
please help x
