  • What are you doing to get her to go to bed?
    My daughter likes a warmed cup of milk 1st and then a warmed cup of water after the milk (so the sugars dont decay her teeth.)
    Do you give her a pillow to sleep on?
    My daughter used to stay up all night until I held her and it turned out that she couldnt stand laying her head on that hard mattress.
    Does she have a wubbie? Or a lovey?
    Give her that and let her go to bed.
    You may just have to rock her until she goes to sleep (which should be quickly) and then lay her in her bed. She'll eventually start sleeping there.
