Yes, keep requesting this to my 14 months old daughter.... who just refrains sleeping. Thoug she si drop dead tired and sleepy but she doesn't want to sleep. She starts [laying all of sudden and once i beging to make her sleep she just starts crying.... I've tried most of the things mentioned in book or by friends like oil massage, hot bath before bedtime, 1 hr play before bedtime, singing lullaby, what not.... please tell me a good, effective and sustainable solution to make her sleep at normal hours....

Hey Nidhi !! wow , that is some patience ... hats off to you girl... i went through the entire talk and even smiled at some of the excerpts but all in all my heart goes out to you and i can understand this constant battle is very draining. I see you have been given a world or options to try but i just wanted to ask one thing, does she snore a bit when she sleeps? you will have to break her daily routine to get her to sleep at a predecided time, yes most of the proparents who have said thatreducing the sleep in the day time may help are right , being hyperactive is still a questionable theory that can only be proved with a lot of clinical testing. Hey we 've all been there, it usually gets better with time , the mantra that helped me , - This too shall pass :-) hang in there.

human body temperature while sleeping is lower than when its awake. The idea is to take a give your kid a hot bath and then take her to a cold room to make her sleep. As the body starts cooling down, it will induce sleep and hopefully she will sleep too... all the best.
