Our expert says:
You are quite right that she probably is not getting enough sleep.
The key is routine - dinner the same time, bath the same time, calming activities at night, then bedtime the same every night. If she wakes during the night and wants to play quietly in her bed, that is ok, but she is not allowed to disturb anyone else. A regular rest time after lunch is also important at this age.
If her sleep does not become more regular, speak to your paediatrician about it.
