    This does help a bit. We have white noise playing all night but I have put this on several times and it helps. The issue seems to be that whenever she's almost asleep she snaps out of it and gets upset again. So it'll calm her, she'll lay quietly for 10 minutes and her breathing will get heavy...then a big cry and she's up again!

    I am not sure? I only spoke to them over the phone once. My son was 26 months and was climbing out of bed all the time and I was desperate as I was pregnant. You can give them a call at least and they will phone you back with advice.

    Thanks, I might do that then. I have to be up at 5:30am 3 days for work so this is really draining me, not to mention her.

    Is your DP having time off over xmas? Does she react the same for you as she does for him? If not, possibly if he has time off, get him to take over for that time to try and break the habit?

    Or can you perhaps move all books etc out of her room, pop a gate on her doorway and remain in the room with her but then there is nothing for her to get out of bed and get?

    He's having a couple of weeks off so we'll definitely be trying something! That might be what have to do, thanks. The only thing is her room is a basket of books and some stuffed toys but I'll take them out today. I'm petrified that she's still going to be shocking when the baby comes!

    Up until maybe a couple of months ago she would happily settle for DP in the night but then for whatever reason she stopped. She cracks it if he goes in during the night. I'm seriously thinking I might have to wean her because she just constantly wants to comfort suck. Constantly. If I laid with her for the whole two hours she would suck the whole time.

    I know you don't want to CIO but I think it's time to get a bit tougher with her. I think it's fine to lie down next to her, and if she tries to get up say 'no, sleep time' an lie her back down. If she screams it is not because she's distressed it's because she's having a tantrum. No more feeding, no more almond milk. It will be hellish but she's not a baby any more and if you stay with her you can be confident that she's not distressed, just pi$$ed with you, lol.

    Have you tried panadol to see if it makes a difference? Just wondering if its sore teeth or something waking her?

    Thats about all I can offer as my ds3 is a shocking sleeper! Luckily his solution is sleeping with me... But I'm having another bub in may so need to try change that soon...

    FL is right. There is a difference between letting a baby cry with distress and a toddler chucking a tanty.

    I would/have let my youngest who used to occ chuck wobblies about bedtime to tantrum in her cot. I just sat down next to her and keep repeating "nigh nigh" till she calmed down. Eventually she got tired and lay down. It was 3 tiring nights to get her out of the stupid behaviour. Also ditch the milk for water.
