Please do not use Stopayne under any circumstances. It contains codeine which is habit forming and constipating among a long list of other side effects.Please give me more information on the exact nature of her sleeping problem and when you last feed her before bedtime.

thank you for your response. i feed her purity and about 6pm.
then we have our supper, she eats off our plate to! She has no teeth yet! at about 7:30pm she has a bottle and with a bit of luck she falls asleep then. We put her in her cot in her own room. she sleeps for about 2 hours then cries.she doesnt want a bottle or her dummy then.we have tried leaving her to cry, but she doesnt calm down. this week i have fallen into the trap of putting her into my bed.then she sleeps!!!!!!!!!!! is this child spoilt?
with my 1st child she slept through from very early, she is 3 now and still has to be in bed by 7pm.
