Our little gir is now 2 years and 2 months. She never ever in these 2 years had problems in going to bed at night and to sleep. All of a sudden for the past week or so she refuses to sleep, she throws MAJOR tantrums, screaming, crying, throwing things, hitting me etc. when she is suppose to go down for the night! I really don't know what to do... I go in and put her on her bed, that is when she hits me etc, but she gets down and slams on the door or open the door and continue with the tantrum.
She even woke up one night last week at 1:30 and didn't go back down again... we were up until 7 O'clock when I took her to school.... I am at my wits end... PLEASE HELP!!!
Hi pinky, Shame it sounds like you are having a crazy time!
Does she have all her teeth yet? Often those last molars come out around age 2. They are known to cause quite a bit of havoc.
I see you have a 3 month old baby. It can be really difficult for a very young toddler to understand that there is another child that requires your love and attention too. Older toddlers can manage their feelings better by talking about it but a child of 2 only knows about using his body to comunicate his needs.
