So, it all turned to poo after her first wake up. I was back to going in there every 20 minutes until at 11 I had a little tantrum myself and got into bed with her. She wasn't brilliant there either, but I think the difference is that I can snooze and settle her at the same time.
At one point I asked her to 'show Mumma your owies' and she pointed to her mouth, so today's task will be getting some nurofen. She also had a bit of a blocked nose so more vapouriser stuff for the humidifier while I'm at the chemist.

:-( I think you may have to wait til she's feeling better/over teething. When my kids were 16ish months old we had a whole month of bad sleep while the molars came in. I was giving nurofen most nights. Once she's over that you might be able to try changing things with regard to how she goes to sleep. I've also had a period where separation anxiety made it impossible to do any firm of cc.
This too shall pass nomsie, hopefully sooner rather than later!

Here it is nomsie! It's mostly about night weaning but I used the same technique, ie gradual retreat just for getting him to sleep and letting me leave the room. I just found some of his comments quite helpful as well, ie that DS was angry not scared when he was crying about only my hand on him.
But she definitely may be in pain and you may find that a dose of nurofen will help her stay asleep.

Thanks for the link @HollyGolightly81- I'll read it shortly.
She has developed a snotty nose today so we have given her a dose of nurofen, Vicks on chest and feet, bepanthen on her slight nappy rash, and I have the humidifier on in her room.
