Two year old DD still wakes on average 3 times a night, sometimes more sometimes less. This is not a regression, she has never routinely slept through the night all the way, she has done it by fluke maybe 3 or four times. We have managed to do a bit of work and she now goes to sleep in her bed with a parent next to the bed or sometimes just one parents hand touching her but we haven't been able to move further than that.
I know we have left this a long time and I'm not too proud about it but my son has Autism and between all of his therapies and just trying to give the kids both quality time etc. we have just been physically and emotionally exhausted. None of that has changed mind you but I'm hoping if we had some sort of clear steps, a program or plan we might be able to progress. My doctor has told me I need to find a way to decrease my stress levels and DD sleeping through the night would certainly do that.
I almost posted this in the no cry section as we won't do controlled crying or anything like locking her in her room and leaving her but I would do a little crying, eg. waiting a few minutes before not going in or waiting for her to come out of her room, I don't know really but you get the idea, nothing too harsh but a little crying if she is not too upset is ok.
We just need an idea, something clearly defined with steps and what to do if she does X.
Help would be greatly appreciated.
