I have a 2 year old daughter (she'll be 3 in May) and she is a HORRIBLE sleeper but her daddy claims she's an angel with him. Though I assume he is lying, it ticks me off to no end that (if he is telling the truth) she sleeps for him and not me. When she is with me she gets up 3 -4 time a night just to come in my room bc she wants to get in bed with me. The problem is that her father has a 1 bedroom apartment and I can only assume that they sleep in the same room. I think that she comes into mine because this is what she's used to at his house. Does anyone have any advice as to how I can get her to sleep through the night in her own room? I'm so desperate and exhausted and I can't take much more of this. Thanks in advance -----Kristen

Thanks. I talked to him this morning and he insists that he sleeps on the couch when she's home with him even though he told me a couple weeks ago that he sleeps on the floor on an inflatable mattress and she sleeps in his bed. I do just put her back in her bed when she comes in my room and then a couple hours later she just comes back. I keep putting her back but it just doesn't seem to work. I will try to fill her belly before bath and then potty and bath and hopefully something gives. My mom said to maybe make a reward chart or something and I might try the old bribing method. Thanks again I will try anything I can....I think that makes me desperate for sleep......

You should ask her dad that when she is visitng not to let them sleep together but maybe let him sleep on the couch and let her have the bed to her self that it has become a problem. It it was me if my daughter climbed in bed with me I would get up and put her right back in her bed. It will take a few night but she will finally get hat she has to stay in her bed. I liked the supernanny way and it really works. The first time say it is bed time. The second time say good night and after the second time don;t say anything but put her back to bed and just continue to do so. SHe will finally get she has to stay in her bed. Be patient it will pass. I hope this helps and you get some much needed rest
