    Lol @ stalking! Thanks will check it out! :-)

I had a friend that did this and within 2 nights bub was waking every 4 hours instead of every 2.

    Good luck.
    Thanks. Will give this a go! It's so confusing! My maternal child health nurse said to decrease the amount :-s

It worked well for us and I SO understand what it's like to have a terrible sleeper, me and DP had tried everything you could think of up to that point!
    Best of luck xx
    After reading this post with the single and realising the possible link between having had DS1 in a single bed for a month before my Husband started a controlled crying technique, and finding he would sleep within the first few minutes every time, we have got DS2, 16 in a single bed in the same room as his brother. It is working great! It's only been a week or so but he has had a cold for half that time and where that normally has him waking 4 times a night he is waking no more than one. His ability to self settle has increased immensely.
    If you your at all apprehensive to control cry LJMsMum, you have nothing to loss trying this! I recommend it.

    Hi, I think your problem might be the overnight bottles. I wonder does she have a bottle to settle during the day? If so, she may be it as a way to go to sleep and that is why she needs a bottle to resettle herself overnight. Babies go through several sleep cycles overnight, as do adults, and may find it difficult to resettle themselves if they are using things like bottles or dummies to go to sleep. This is tough for bubs and parents alike. Your baby needs to learn to go to sleep on her own both day and night. Its a good idea to get rid of the bottles as they are bad for her little teeth too. Im not saying it will be easy but the way forward is to cut all bottles, she can sip water from a cup, and offer her lots of reassurance when she wakes but no milk. You may find that you need some support, professional or otherwise, but I believe your problem can be solved gently with some small changes. Hope this helps.
