  • Get her up. Put her in a nice warm bath and snuggle her nicely. Tell her she must go to bed to see her mom tomorrow, ever so nicely.

  • How old is she? When my daughter won't go to sleep, I go sit in the living room with her and tell her that even if she does not go to sleep, it is still time to sit and no longer make noise. I tell her when the sun goes to sleep, we all have to be quiet so we don't wake it up. I sit in the living room with the lights off and the TV very low. It works for her. Good luck Momma, I know how hard this must be on you.
