anyone have any hints ideas for the "IM NOT GONNA SLEEP" battle.
she gave up her nap a couple weeks before her third birthday and now shes trying to give up her nite time sleep too...

i also have the additional problem of BB and 3 month baby needing to go to bed around the same time

and the further problem of the BB getting very jelous when im trying to put little baby to sleep...im thinking a basket of special toys for those times but cant think what to put in it...

Happy BIRTHDAY Lara! :-)


Usually with Nikolas we set the timer....he goes the bathroom, puts his pjs on and then we put him to bed.

thanks!!!!!!
i started putting her to sleep at 645 and getting it all started with dinner at 5 and there is almost no battle--i think for 2 easons--1 i am more relaxed about how quickly she listens to me cause i know ive got tons of time and when im relaxed about t she somehow listens quicker and for 2 its a very long wind down routine with bath and massage. the baby is mostly on my hip at that time so my arm and back break but its better than her screaming!
