I have a 16 month old daughter who is driving me around the bend. she refuses to sleep she used to be such a good sleeper. she used to sleep from 7 till 7 now its 10-11pm till 7-8am. she is miserable during the day due to lack of sleep but hyper when it comes to bedtime. i have a routine for her so i don´t know what to do.

she used to sleep during the day for 2 hours but we stopped that because she wasn´t sleeping at night now she doesn´t sleep at all her routine is she gets a bath at 6 every second night then a few snacks at about 6:30 normally fruit or toast/porridge at seven we get her room ready for the night and into her pj´s( if she hasn´t had a bath) then we read her books to relax her she stays in bed for 20 minutes then keeps getting out and then for two/two and a half hours we are putting her back in.

i am at my wits end me and my partner no longer relax in the evenings and all i want to do is cry or pull out my hair.

I will take any advice or suggestions please please please
