Waking every hour or so
« on: November 26, 2014, 12:19:26 pm »
My 7 minyh old has a good daytime routine, regular naps and feeds and eats plenty before bed. She wakes up every 60-90 mins and will not go back down unless I take her into my bed and cuddle her tightly. Have tried sshh pat, she drops off with this but then wakes and cried 5 mins later. After about 6 tries of this I am just too tired to persevere. Everyone I speak to says leave her to cry. What can I do?

Ha, love your username!

Could you post your whole daytime routine for us please?

How does she go to sleep for naps and bedtime?  Can she settle herself?

Don't leave her to cry, here we don't ever believe that is the answer.  We'd love to help you with a  gentle plan to get you both some more sleep once we have a bit more information :)
