Hi there, unfortunately I do not have an answer but wanted you to know I am in the same boat. My DS is up before 5:30 am every morning and has decided this week that there will be no nap, despite his eyes saying he is absolutely exhausted. Generally the afternoon is not pleasant with him losing it by 4 pm, but often before. We also have HUGE eating issues, which is not helped by the sleep issue.

I have thought of getting darker curtains for his room to see if that helped, but the other night he slept with me in a dark room and was up only 15 minutes later. sigh. I also have a 3 month old, so sleep is not a premium with me. I am about to lose it as well with this 3 year old!

Hope you get some ideas. I would like to know if anyone has been successful at solving this sleep issue!

DD's little night time toy that plays music and projects a image on the ceiling broke. I don't know how long its been broken, but DH thought this might be DD's problem. I bought her a new one a different one. things are worse she is up all night calling me because her"light" doesn't work. She doesn't know how to turn it on it doesn't glow in the dark like the old one.

I saw the old toy and should have bought the same thing instead of something different.
