My DD is 7 months old. She sleeps on her tummy in her cot in my bedroom. I usually either feed or cuddle her to sleep. She generally wakes for 2, maybe 3 feeds a night. She has a dummy and a comforter.
For about a week or more she has been waking every hour or so absolutely screaming. She won't let me pay her to sleep. She stops crying when I pick her up. She then won't let me put her back down. I'm thinking maybe it's separation anxiety.
Any suggestions on how to get past this? I work full time and the lack of sleep is killing me.

My DD who is 8 months old went through this a couple of weeks ago.. it could be the 7/8/9 month sleep regression..
I ended up putting DD in her pram and pushing back amd forth untill she went to sleep.
She has only in the last week started to self settle again and also let me ssshhh/pat her back to sleep.

Ohhhh yes, thats right.. sorry I haven't been around for ages.. I remember the silent reflux.
Teething definitely throws out the sleeping routine. Hopefully it comes through quickly for her..

I don't think I could cope with her sleep getting worse lol. I think solids is helping with the reflux though.

It makes you crazy the lack of sleep!
How is she going on solids? Have you found with teething she has gone off them a bit?

She's temperament with solids. She fights the first few spoons but then seems to enjoy the rest. Today she was off her solids and had more milk but yesterday she was off her milk and had more solids. She's unpredictable lol.

She's now 9 months (in a few days). We moved her to her own room. We just kept doing our own thing and now I can put her in the cot awake and she self settles off to sleep!

Day sleeps are fine with us. Particularly since 3 months when I learnt that she is a tummy sleeper.
