  • If you can just tough it out for a week (probably at the most!) and let her cry, she'll realize that screaming no longer gets the results she's looking for. It'll be tougher on you than it is on her! I promise she'll be fine and in the end you'll both get a great nights sleep.

  • Did something recently change in her routine?
    In the past did she go to sleep well?
    Do you have a consistent bed time routine?
    How old is she?

  • I am having the same issue. My dd is 2 1/2 and still won't sleep through the night and won't stay in her bed. She wakes up 3-4 times a night if I keep putting her back in her bed. She won't even try going to sleep in her own bed to start with she has to be on my bed. So I need help too.
