We are having trouble settling our 3yr old daughter 5 out of 7 nights

Hi Maree,
My partner and I are having trouble settling our 3yr old daughter 5 out of 7 nights. she also wakes up a number of times during the night. she has had a bedtime routine for the last 12mths. we also have a 20mth old daughter who is beginning to copy her sister. please help we are so tired

Maree...
Answer: Hi, The most important thing you can do is make sure she settles into bed awake and without you initially at night or else she will wake on her light sleep (as we all do) and look for your comfort to return to sleep. Cheers, Maree
