I am having trouble putting my 5 1/2 year old daughter in a sleep routine. Putting her in her own bed is fine it takes her about 15 to 30 mins to put her to sleep. Her bedtime is 7.30 but she wakes up at 11pm, I then hug her and kiss her and say that it is alright whilst i walk her back to bed, about half an hour later she comes back into our bed. The second time i say 'Bedtime' without no hugs or kisses and then the third time is no response i walk her straight back to her bedroom into her bed and everytime after that i do not respond to her. I started this sleep routine about 2 weeks ago. i have a night lamp for her a reward chart a teddy bear a treat box for the next day, i also have tried baby monitors and have told her that i can hear her or anything that happens. I have pretty much tried everything possible but it has been 2 weeks and she still continues to come into my bed everynight so My question to anyone out there that can help me. I know it doesnt work over night but it has been 2 weeks and ive tried almost everything. Is there anyone out there that has been threw this or has succeded in this? Or is there any other ideas that anyone has for me? As i have googled ways to help me and also super nannys techniques as well as sleep rules. Just wanting to know if anyone has the 11pm-2am problem like i do?
