My 5 year old went through that. As a matter of fact I was not able to establish a sleeping pattern for her. I talked to her doctor, my mom, friends etc... I was told to give her a warm bath around the same time, give her warm milk, read stories to her and put her to bed at the same time every night. This did work for my others but my last baby never got on a schedule. Getting them on a schedule is the key. Also what worked for my other kids was to play soft music for them. They would fall asleep by the second song. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
