Gwen Hedges Advice from our paed 14yrs ago – routine, routine, routine! You are the boss, put them into bed and walk away. Do not make eye contact after saying goodnight. If they get up, take them back and say sleep time. Our daughter would cry till she got sick. Dr Bartlett said I must let her sleepnin her sick once saying she would never do it again. Fortunately just the threat of leaving her in her mess stopped her from doing it. Good luck mommy

Beverley Rademeyer Moreland For my 4 and 2 year old girls its about routine -Bath, dinner, hot chocolate and bed. They both are proud of their routine. The 2 year old has always wanted to just be put down and left. Even now she will say “leave now mommy so I can sleep”. The 4 year old was a good sleeper until the baby came alone. After month of lying with her until she fell asleep, I just put my foot down. She screamed so much I told her to keep quiet or I would be forced to take her outside. I never had a problem again.

Angela Coetzer Eldest (8), tell her it’s bedtime… She says good night & off she goes. Youngest (14m), usually lays on a blanket with a pillow on the lounge floor & drinks her bottle or she’ll lay on the bed with me & fall asleep

Lynn Kolesky My daughter (3) needs someone to sit with her till she falls asleep, but we don’t mind. My son (15wks) just puts himself to sleep. We put him down after feeding, he ‘talks a bit’ and when we look again he’s asleep.
