We need help. Dd is 8 months old. A month ago we moved interstate. Prior to that, we were co-sleeping part time. This started becoming an issue so I spoke with my MCH nurse who said don't do anything until we are settled in our new home. Well, we've been here a month. I'm sick of co-sleeping. It's not working. Dd doesn't seep soundly at all. She thrashes about and wakes frequently.
I looked up the tresillian sleep techniques and we are trying hands on settling in the cot. It isn't going well. We had a week where it was going ok, but then DD got sick so all bets were off. Now we are back to trying to settle her to sleep in the cot and it's back to square one. She won't do it. It's separation anxiety to the max. If I try to put her down awake but drowsy, but she wakes herself up and either cries or wants to play. The only decent sleep she has is if I sit with her in my arms. That doesn't work for me. I have stuff to do. Like cooking and laundry and showering and eating. We are all tired. Why won't she just sleep in her bed.
