hi

i have that problem with my daugther still but bedtime is 8pm and i bring her to bed and read her a story. Then once thats done i give her her teddy and her fav. book and tell her to go to sleep than i go to my room to wait till shes a sleep. i let her know she cant get up from bed and that she has to sleep.

I hope that idea helps.

if not try letting her play an hour before bedtime to make her sleepy is what i would think of but my friend would say that would whine her up so she says laying down in the livingroom or in her room if shes got a TV and watch a kids movie with her or let her watch it on her own.

it depends on what you like.

I know how you feel. My daughter is the exact same way. She is 2 years old and I have yet to find a way to get her to go to sleep alone and before 12. What I do at least is put her to sleep with us and then once she has been asleep for 20+ minutes I move her into her own bed and if she wakes up in the middle of the night I walk her right back into her room and lay her down and don't leave until she goes back to sleep.

I've tried everything from feeding her right before bedtime (7-7:30) and Bella won't go to bed! She acts like she doesn't want to sleep until we fall asleep and with us! Geesh, we need alone time and she needs her own space. Help!
