Hi, it's been forever since I posted on WebMD, I think my last post was to announce the arrival of our youngest daughter in Oct. I am now faced with an insanely huge obstacle and I was hoping that I could get some advice or input. My now 3 month sleeps through the night (thank goodness) but the 2 year old is another story. I just took away her bottle a month and a half ago because I hated the fact that she was so dependent on it at bedtime. Ever since then (and even previous to) she won't sleep! She goes to bed at five and she gets up between 4:30-5 am EVERY morning. I've tried stretching her out til seven or so and she still gets up at the same ridiculously early hour. I've had to put a gate on her door because she wanders the house and gets into everything. I just don't get what i'm doing wrong or what I can do better? She won't nap either no matter how hard I try and by the time 5 comes around she's falling on the floor begging to 'go seepy'. I know she's exhausted, I am too! I'm starting to lose patience and I am at a loss as to what to do. We live on a ranch in MT and it's about 2 degrees outside otherwise the girl would be outside constantly!!! Help!View Thread
