my DD will be 3 in January and not sure what is going on since nothing has changed at all, but she has been not taking very long naps anymore anywhere from a half hour to an hour when they use to be 2.5-3 hours. She didn't have a nap today so i thought she would go to bed and stay asleep nope wrong. Lately she gets up 1-2 times a night. Last night I couldn't get her to go to bed until 1am then she woke up at 730am. I told her she was going back to bed since she didn't go to bed until late, but she wouldn't go back to bed. Bedtime normally is 8 or 830. When my oldest dd has no school they stay up longer. Well tonight she went to bed at about 9 or 930 and had no nap today and now at 12 she is awake again mind you she only had about 6 and a half hours of sleep last night.

try doing the same thing every night around bedtime, (bath, read a book, etc.) then tuck her in and the lights out. sometimes if you can get them in a routine then they start getting the hang of it. as for the late night wakes, try making the room dark and not going in and checking on her right away. Both my sons tend to go back to sleep when they relize no one is coming in to see what they are doing, cause with my 1 yr old if he sees you then he's up and not going back to sleep until you get him out of the crib and he gets a bottle. hope this helps some
