My youngest daughter is now 7yrs old(september baby) and she still refuses to sleep in her own bed nomatter what we do.We tried allowing her to sleep with the tv until a certain time.She just ended up staying up all night and being exhausted in the morning. We tried letting her sleep with her big sister since they share a room. That didn't work.We read books and even tried a night lite.That didn't work. We have been stuck with her in our bed almost since the day she was born.Unless she's in our bed or I'm in hers with her she refuses to go to bed.She now also refuses to eat much of anything even her favorite foods.I don't know how she even makes it through the day because she rarely eats breakfast. She says it hurts her stomache to eat so early. We pack her lunch depending on what's on the school lunch menu. Half the time she doesn't finish it. Last week I tried sending her sliced apples for snack as she used to love them. She never ate them.Today we attempted to get her to try meatloaf and mash potatoes.She skipped dinner instead.I'm frustrated and worried that she will never outgrow this.It's a daily struggle. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
