Re: Help please!
First of all- My dh leaves in XX days for Iraq so I feel you in wanting sleep issues resolved. What has really worked for me is routine.
6:45-pj time (we have certain ones that are worn only at night-warm fleece ones)
7:00-story time on big brother's bed
7:15-night night boys-I love you and I will see you in the morning
Now my routine hardly varies and it really helps them learn that its time for bed. When she wakes up in the middle of the night-I would check on her-make sure she's ok then put her back to bed-I don't talk much so that its not "fun" to be up in the middle of the night.
