Just recently my 19 month old who was previously a great sleeper has suddenly started fighting to go to sleep. She used to go to bed around 830 to 9pm and take 2 naps a day on in the morning and one in the afternoon now it's a fight to get her to go to sleep. She will go to her room and get in her bed and stay there for awhile then she will get out and play for hours before going to bed which includes her banging on the walls and door. We constantly go in to tell her it is time for bed and put her back in bed but this just starts the whole process again, and she cries. And at nap time she just plays no napping. We have tried cutting out the morning nap and only having one in the afternoon but still no luck. Then cutting out both but no luck in her going to bed. Last night for example she asked to go to bed so I took her up, but at 12am she was still awake. I went in to her room got her changed her diaper let her come and cuddling in our bed until 1am then back to her bed, and she ended up crying for a few min then she settled down and eventually went to sleep. Is there anyone out there who this has happened to as well. Or anyone who might have some ideas as to why this is happening now and what I might try to help her go to sleep like she used to.
