    .... Or she could be the parent, it can be hard to tell as she asks some questions like she is the parent. I'm also not meaning to be horrible, but the refusal to add any clarification or follow up posting at all makes it really hard to know what to say.
    In previous threads Sylvia has been a mother to adult children, a mother to adult children and a toddler, a mother to adult children who can't cope with noise, a friend to someone who's life was always in danger, and who knows what else.
    Just a bit of FYI for those who do want to spend their time trying to help.

    If you don't want a toddler to wake after 30 minutes don't aid them to sleep (dummy-pat-milk etc). If a child 12 months+ wakes after 30 minutes don't even try to resettle. At that point it's all over red rover. You need to wait another 2 hours before trying again. Even is bub only sleep for 5 minutes you're screwed - clock starts again.

    I agree with Vic Park. If they wake after 30mins give it up

    I think the reason people want to know if she is the parent, or nanny or this is a child care assignment is bc answers may well differ based on that. if she is the parent, then she clearly wants to try gentle settling techniques so other suggestions may be given in that vein. if she is the nanny then I would say she needs to respect the wishes of the parents or possibly move on. if it's a theoretical case to reflect on for study, then answers may differ again.

    At the very least, it's important to know how old the child is.

    Honestly, my assumption of the op is that she is the nanny (possibly the grandparent), English isn't her first language and she's 'older.' I think from her posts she is not 'incapable' but actually cares and is trying to figure out different ways to help this child. Since she is still patting she is obviously following the parents wishes. I assume she's asked about childcare and sleep school as she's hoping to find different solutions to approach the parents with and potentially validate her feelings. As a nanny I often researched different things regarding the children in my care to discuss with the parents. Maybe she looks after more than one family. Maybe she's a nanny and has children or grandchildren of her own. There's a variety of reasons why she's posting so many different questions but for this particular thread more info wasn't needed. She wanted to know why patting wasn't working, answer her question or don't, ya know.
