Toddlers: The Mumsnet Guide - advice and experiences from parents who have been in your position and lived to tell the tale!
DD1 returned to our bed when she broke her leg but there is not enough room for 4 now as she takes up the most space.It would really help me out if he can put her to bed with minimal stress. He is a wuss at listening to her being upset and goes to extremes from pandering to her whims to making laughable threats.
Sounds like she is playing him like a concert piano. I would go out with your DD2 at bedtime every night for a week and let him figure it out.
Pre-empt everything;PJs onSnack after PJsSmall drink of water when cleaning teethToilet straight after teeth/drinkFav teddy on pillowNightlight onDoor ajar/open/closedStory/chatSnuggle and kissesThen that is it no excuses, no whinges, back to bed with no chatter every time she leaves the room.Make sure he tells her what is going to happen before he starts the first evening and sticks to it. She is older so she will test it, stick with it.
