So we attended sleep school a few weeks back, and from day 1 there, DD responded well to the settling techniques, and was becoming quite good at self settling.
This week though, each night is getting worse and worse.
She gets this blood curdling scream up when she wakes at night, and I'm so close to just feeding her to sleep to make it stop. When she wakes, it takes like an hour I settle again. And it's so intense, I'm not enjoying it. Sleep time is becoming really stressful. What have I done wrong? Could it be night terrors?
Also, she keeps waking at 4am and I cannot get her back to sleep!
She's currently 11 months, does anyone have any tips? I feel like I'm 'scarring' her with this carry on.

Is she teething or unwell? Going through a developmental milestone? I have 2 littlies, and the most unpredictable thing in our lives over the last 3.5yrs since I had ds1 has been SLEEP! I try to practice no cry sleep solutions, and sometimes the easiest thing to do is take a step back (ie. go back to feeding or rocking etc) then start to move forward again when bub is more receptive to less hands on settling.

Oh I just don't know. All she's done today is roll back and forwards in her cot screaming angrily and biting whenever I'm near her

What's the issue with feeding her to sleep?

When I fed her to sleep she would wake hourly, and only resettle with a feed. Because of that she was so full on milk and was rejecting solids. She's 11 months and only just started to accept solids now her BM is cut back

Could you contact the sleep school for advice? My thought is being consistent is probably best and it should pass, but if it is getting worse then I would be trying to get some more advice from sleep school
