my advice is keep her up all day even if she didnt sleep and keep her busy and show her how much fun that can be had and what shes been missing and that their is othing excitting going on at night. she will see that their is a lot to do during the day then their is at night. its going to take tim buy hopefly it should work. GOOD LUCK..

Well, I kinda am! My daughter sleeps 4 or 5 hours and is awake for 7 or 8 hours. I've tried keeping her from taking naps during the day so she will sleep at night and I know its not funny but to me it is, anyway she will get so tired that she will fall asleep walking. So I gave in to her sleeping. I have a year or so till she starts nursery so I figure I have plenty time to get it sorted. :D
