Ok my daughter will be 3 in june but for the last week she has her days and nights mixed she will go to sleep at 11 pm sleep for 3 hours every night and stay away till 6 am then she will stay asleep for another 3 hours and be up till about 2 pm when she wants to sleep for 5 - 6 hours and we have tryed everything to switch it back. Now she has always had a problem sleeping like going to sleep at 2 am and getting up at noon and for that we tryed everything as well. Any suggestions? Will try anything at this point

My son did this for six months and in the end I took him to the doctors because I had another son who slept well and up all day and one son who was awake all night and slept on and off all day. So I got no sleep at all. The doctor told me to give my son Phenergon. This is a travel sickness drug which has a side effect of making the child drowsy. I had to give it to him for three nights to reset his sleeping pattern. It worked fine and we have not had to use it again. If this continues then go to the doctor because you can not cope on no sleep at all.
