My 2 yr old refuses to go to bed at night, help?

She has always been a good sleeper and we have always used the same "getting ready for bed" routine but just over the last couple of weeks she has started refusing to go to her bed and will find any excuse. She is still in her cott and we are currently organising a bed for her but until then she cries to the point of making herself sick. Has anyone else experienced this?

yes, I would do the routine and walk out. 10 minutes later I got to cuddle her one more time and then I walked out. DH would go in after that and he got stern with her. She stopped while he was talking but when he left she would start again. He would tell her to hush and go to sleep like a big girl. After a few nights of this we both put her to bed and daddy would leave last. Seeing him leave seemed to be a switch and she would role over and go to sleep.
