    Hey if medical issues have been ruled out the best way to encourage sleeping through is to ensure the sleep environment remains consistent. Don't use an side to get bub to sleep (music/boob/dummy/patting/rocking) if that aide won't be there consistently through the night. Otherwise bub will stir between sleep cycles and think "wtf! Where is my boob/bottle/dummy!."

    Can you amend your bedtime routine so bub is following eat/play/sleep more? Having at least 20 mins active play before bed is one of the best wags to encourage bub to sleep through.

    Sorry to digress OP, but seriously tree girl, stuff the neighbours! If you think CC will help and you're comfortable with that, I would just do it. Your sleep, mental health and physical health is more important than your neighbours being disrupted for a couple of minutes on a couple of nights.

    OP you never said, are you okay with CC? Have you considered it? I think the ideal CC window is between 6 and 18 months from memory.

    Also I don't think neighbours can hear as much as we may think. It is winter. Windows are closed. My neighbours are forever apologising fr their dogs and when their toddler cries. I do not hear a thing!

    I agree with stuff the neighbours and do what you need to do.

    I have never tried Cc, have just been trying Elizabeth Pantley's gentle Removal method..been a week, not working yet.
    She does have an active 20-30 mins ply just before we put her to bed. We were thinking maybe its over stimulating for her.
    We are now thinking of playing around with her bedtime. Now we start the bed time routine by 7:30-8 but its only at around 9 that she falls asleep. Maybe thats too late...

    Definitely too late IMO. I would aim for not letting her nap longer than 2.5 hours and wake by 3pm and bed by 7, feed at 6:30 ( not in her room), then go in her room, get her dressed, sing a nursery rhyme or 2, read a book or 2, then down at 7 and make sure how you put her down each night is the same (whether that be the gentle removal method, pat shush or CC)

    ...
    The benefits of active play before bed (in encouraging self settling) are negated if bub is then fed to sleep.

    To enaourage self settling 20-30 minutes active play after the last feed is needed.

    Also with all the wriggling - perhaps look at room temp and bedding. Wriggling is a possible sign of cold.
    (My first bet would still be how bub falls asleep).

    If she's not going to sleep until 8 or 9 at night then I would bet money that her wakings are from her being overtired. Babies and toddlers often sleep worse at night if they are overtired so I would work on bringing her bedtime to 6.30/7.

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to update you on this.
    Thanks to you all brainstorming on the issue, I brought bedtime ahead by 7:30-8 pm and from the last 6 days, she has not waken up screaming and crying. She does wake up once or twice, but then goes back to sleep without making too much of a fuss.
    I can defintely see light at the end of the tunnel.
    Thanks again to this wonderful group of Mums who showed me the way! Really appreciate it!
