Hi! so this is the first time I have done this and unfortunately it is to ask advice to any one that thinks they can help! My 4 year old will not sleep!!! Every night at bedtime is a battle. We have a routine every night and follow it to a T. She used to be awesome at bed time ever since she was a baby,but  the last 2 months have been hell! Bed time is 8:30 and i am usually still fighting with her at 11:00 to go to sleep and sometimes it is even later. she wakes up in the middle of the night and it stats all over again, plus she is up at 7:00 in the morning. I know she is tired and by 2:00 she is a beast but refuses to lay down to take a nap or even just rest. I am at my wits end. The baby is still up a few times a night so I am averaging about 2 hours of sleep for myself a night. Please any advice will be put to the test!!!

Have you tried to lay down with her? Sometimes the older sibling just wants to be cuddled and comforted, jealousy I guess. But My son went through the same thing, I found that shmoozing him was what worked best. HTH
