Not going to sleep at bedtime
Can any one give me some advice please, my 21 month old daughter keeps getting out of her bed at night time, when we put her down for the night. We follow a routine of milk, bedtime story then light out. She goes to her room for her milk and is in her bed for her story. The minute we leave the room she gets back up and follows you, she doesn't cry. We take her back to bed, but she gets up again. I've tried leaving the door open, standing outside the room, going into the living room, but she just gets up. I've been calm, been angry, tearful, you name it but she still persists in getting up. I'm at my wits end. We moved her bedtime to 7.30 to see if that would make a difference (previously she went to bed at 7) but it's not helping. She's a good wee soul the rest of the time, it's just bedtime that's so trying. She's in a toddler bed so there's nothing to stop her getting out, even if I close her room door she can reach the handle and get out!!!
