Q.

24 month old doesn't want to sleep

My husband went away for two weeks for work related matters. During his absence my 24 month old girl woke up every night approx 4 times. Since my husband's return she continued to wake me up sometimes eve more than 4 times. She is know very attatched to me and constantly wants my attention. I must even sit with her at night before she goes to sleep. This is very tirring as I still have two teenage boys to attned to and I am also a working mom. Any suggestions?

Your husband is the person who needs to do his bit here as his departure on business caused this insecurity. He must read to her and have lots of patience at her bedtime. Put a nightlight in her room.
