My DD is 12 months old and I've been rocking her to sleep since she started standing up. This was fine as it used to take about 15 minutes.
Lately it's taking forever. Like an hour plus. It's not related to how tired she is, she just can't seem to get comfy in my arms now. I can't continue to do this as I have a toddler to look after too.
She sleeps all night long so I'm reluctant to do any harsh controlled crying - but am happy with some crying if it helps the situation.
My dad will be looking after her once a week and he can't be spending an hour rocking her to sleep either.

What other methods have you tried so far?

I have tried leaving her in her cot and attempting to settle her in there but she stands up and we both get hysterical. I get flustered and end up being inconsistent. I realise I will have to learn to settle her in her cot now though.

Have you tried taking her for a walk in the pram? I find that either puts DS to sleep or he is easier to get to sleep once we get home.

Have a look into cry in arms, is she upset or just not going to sleep?

Is she still in a sleeping bag? If so short sheet it so she can't stand up.
After 12mths I started doing the 'place in cot and say night night'. When they get upset I cuddle kiss and pop them back. I sit by the cot saying shush shush and pat if needed. It did take a few days to start to work.
