Need Sleep Help!
Posted 05 January 2012 - 09:26 PM
Help, I don't want her to have to scream that long before going down and I don't want her to wake during the night.
What do you think might be wrong and what can I do?

I'd recommend a long cuddle and a feed of milk when it happens. The co-sleeping is a great idea, too. It's better maybe retraining her out of those habits than having the poor little mite trying to settle herself in her own bed after waking up like that. Just be there for her, lots of cuddles and reassurance and hopefully it'll only last a few days like my DS.
All the best to you all!

When it does happen I pretty much do anything I can to get her back to sleep whether it's cuddling, a bottle or co-sleeping.
When she's going to bed a night do you stay with her? We still occasionally get a noisy night and I tend to let her cry for a few minutes then go back in and cuddle her and try again. It can sometimes take a few visits but it lets her know I'm still there for her and helps me to feel better too.

Im thinking ours is the 18 month sleep regression... could be the same thing you're going thru?
