try speaking to him/her eveyday about becoming a big boy/girl... tell them that big kids sleep all nifht and mummies should only have 2 get up to babies in the middle of the night. my 3 1/2 year old hated the thought of being a baby and i found this really helped. when u put them to bed at night say to them now remember what we talked about, you are going to try and bw a big boy/girl tonight ans sleep right through. its not something that will happen overnight but if u keep at it i found it eventually worked. also i bribed mine telling him that id buy him something nice the first night he slept through, then after 1 night say ul buy something a bit bigger if they do it for a whole week! even a packet of sweets workes, they just feel lucky to get rewarded... or a trip to their favoueite place. i hope u get sonewhere soon as i know how tiering it can be. im expecti g number 2 in a few weeks so i nipped this in the bud as soon as i found lut i was expecting. getting up to one child is quite enough! good luck x
