I'd just like to hear people's feedback as my 16 month old has never been a great sleeper. Since birth she's slept through the night only about 6-8 times. When she was 8 months we went to sleep school as she was waking every hour and would end up sleeping in our bed. After sleep school she learnt how to self settle so she can easily put herself to sleep if I put her into her cot awake but the problem is she will wake at least once or twice a night. I am still breastfeeding and I have found that without a feed she just cries and cries and will not go back to sleep until fed. I have tried giving her water but she knows the difference and will not resettle.
Do you think the problem is the fact that she is waking wanting a feed and knowing she is going to get one?? How can I overcome this?
She is a great sleeper during the day but in the middle of the night it's like she needs a feed to go back to sleep!
