    Default 'No cry sleep solutions for a 15 mth old??

    DD goes to sleep fine by herself but wakes up once or twice a night crying. I cannot and will not leave her alone to cry. Last night I spent nearly 1.5 hours sitting/ standing beside her cot and laying her down and telling her till go to sleep while she cried continuously. Eventually, she gave in and went to sleep.

    She will not bedshare. I have tried. She will not let me pat her to sleep, she pushes my hand away. When I try and shush her, she screams louder. Music does not work.

    My suggestions that does not involve letting her cry it out alone?

    I don't have time to read books either, so just give me the abbreviated version

    Sorry if this is asking the obvious, but do you know what woke her? DS only usually wakes up when he is hungry, thirsty, needing a cuddle, hot, cold, teething etc..

    Any reason why you didn't pick her up for a cuddle?

    I spent the 2 hours prior to that giving her a drink, rocking her and distracting her from crying by sitting in the loungeroom. I gave her panadol incase she was teething etc. NO idea what woke her.....

    Cuddling and rocking just made her angrier and intensified the crying. I have thought of nightmares. Don't know

    Hi - I'm just wondering - when you're hearing her crying - how long is it before you are in there with her?

    Default 'No cry sleep solutions for a 15 mth old??

    My son went through a faze where he would cry in his sleep and going into him would wake him and agitate
    Him more and cause him to cry more get worked up etc if I left him say 10 mins he would go back to sleep on his own, is there a particular reason you won't leave her to cry a little while, studies show it causes them no hard whatsoever - not causing a fight or judging at all just curious

    These were my thoughts too - I found if I went in straight away DS would wake up and become more and more distressed. Once I stopped going in straight away - like you said 10 minutes, he put himself back to sleep. I think this is because it wasn't fully waking up like he did with my presence there.
