How do I get her to stay in bed and sleep?

My daughter will be 2 in 2 months and for the last week she has been fighting bedtime like crazy! I'll get her in her bed after a bath and a kiss, and he will get out of bed and come see me over and over again. It's so frustrating to put her back in bed and literally 2 seconds later she is back out. What can I do?

  • Be consistent. Keep taking her back to bed without saying a word. As long as you keep on it, she will eventually get the hint and stay in bed.

  • I've tried that for a week and it doesn't seem to work. The only thing that gets her to sleep is her father rubbing her head, which I am against, but he does.
