Our 19th month old daughter just does not want to sleep through. We have tried everything we could think of - taken her for sleep training, she eats well before bed, she has a set routine. Nothing seems to work - any suggestions?

Good morning. I assume you keep her room dark with no distractions (like TV), but have you tried white noise, like a fan or noise machine? Both of my sons have to have some type of noise in order to sleep.

I have an 18 month old daughter & although she is a great sleeper she does have the occasional night where she soesnt like to go to bed! She has a 'Baby Born' that she adores. Sometimes if needed we tell her that baby is tired too and this encourages her to go to bed. We have a dim night light in her room so that even if she isnt particularily tired she can play with a few toys and books in her cot. We also leave our little girl for 10 minutes before we go in to her. Usually she goes back to sleep but if not it's just that she needs a change or whatever. I hope I have helped although I'm sure you have tried just about everything to get a decent nights sleep!!!
