My 18 month old has never ever slept through the night. I'm not sleeping, she is not sleeping and nobody is happy!
She co sleeps and is still bf at least 4+ times per night
My last resort will be controlled crying but before we go that way I'd be interested in looking into a no cry method....?

We used Dr jay Gordons nightweaning technique to great success for both girls.
Highly recommend it if you want a gentle method.
wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.

Can you have her sleep in another room?
I don't know about the no-cry method but DS was waking 4 times a night and having to be bf back to sleep up until he turned 1 and we moved him to his own room. Now he sleeps through the night.

So for the first 3 nights I can pat, hold, cuddle and feed, as long as I do not let her feed to sleep between 11 and 6?
Once your girls were night weaned did you find they slept better?

I too would love to hear how you go. DS (19 months also) has been waking 4 times a night and it's killing me.
We don't co-sleep but I'm wondering if this method would still work for us as I don't know what else to try.
I had one night recently that I couldn't feed because of medication I had to take. Let's just say it was a very long and torturous night.

Subbing, I would love to know how you I too. DS2 is two weeks off 1 and still feeding a few times overnight.

Dd2. 15mths and 2 x feeds @ 12&4am with bedtime 6.30pm-6am. Again family wedding and stupid sleep times. I had too many wines one night and realised I couldn't feed her. So gave her water. She was in a cot in our room and that stretched her out till 1-2am ish but offered lots of cuddles. Kept repeating. I wore a turtleneck shirt, a new one so she couldn't smell me so easily. By day 3 she was back in her cot but my hand thru the bars shushing her. It took 1hr that night to resettle each time. Offered water in a bottle as compensation. Each child is different. Dd2 was highly attached to bf. so it took longer. Dh also works away so there was limited help. I was a zombie for a week.
