Hi all, my dd was a tough newborn. Screamed all the time and hardly slept. Then at 7 months we got help at a sleep school and she started sleeping through the night. Her day sleeps slipped back into catnapping but I just accept that now as she has never had long day sleeps.
At about 12 months she started waking through the night and he did the same thing of just laying her back down. Then she started standing in the cot so to get her to sleep we had to lay her down and step away from the cot over and over until she got the point.
BUT she still kept waking up more and more. It got to the point where I just put her to bed with me and she slept through!
So now I put her to bed around 7. I lay her down over and over because she always tries to get up. She generally falls asleep without a fight (except tonight she screamed, don't know why). She'll sleep happily in the cot until between 11-1. She wakes up and if we get her back to sleep in her own bed usually having to put a hand on her back to settle her , she wakes up about 20mins later. This can go on all night so we just bring her go bed with us.
I don't want her in our bed forever but she still doesn't talk much so I can't reason with her and she hates going to bed even though she accepts it when she's super tired.
How do I get her to stay in her own bed without waking up every 20 mins after midnight??
