I figured out how to get G to go to sleep. Well, that is until she figures out what I have figured out. She is smart, that one.
I have started putting a cold cloth on her eyes. She has to be still to keep it in place and then she falls asleep. Why did I not try this sooner? When I say all that it takes is her being still to fall asleep I speak the truth, that is all she needs to do and she knows it so she doesn't get still until now.
She has been complaining of burning eyes and twice they made her cry. One day at nap she was using the burning eyes as an excuse not to go to sleep so I thought of this cloth trick and it worked. So we have done it a couple more times and it works. I don't want to over use it, but I damn well will recommend using it several more evenings!!
She was asleep by 9:30pm last night a whole 15 mins after lights out as opposed to the hour minimum she normally stays awake. Yee Haw!! After almost 3 years of not going to sleep I think I have solved it!!
