We had 1 nw last night so lying on the floor for 30 mins at 1:30 then I had to wake her at 7:40 as we had to drop Dh at work. 

Nap was 11:50 - 13:55
Then bt 18:45 took an hour for her to fall asleep with me there.  She kept shouting on me and patting her bum then hanging over the edge of the cot looking for me.

Naps are ok, I just leave and she cries for about 1-2 mins softly then off to sleep.

I'll read the treads and see what in think will be best. Will get to get this wee one sorted first before moving on to dd1

Sounds like having you in the room might BT distracting her from sleeping?

If she can self settle (for naps) maybe WI/WO would work at night. I imagine it would be a few long evenings at first though...We used WI/WO after my DD (10mo) got used to us sleeping on her floor at night during the 9mo sleep regression but then also got distracted by us being there and wouldn't go back to sleep. DH andI took turns with it. It did work well for us.

What a horrible night. WU from 2:15 - 4:18 as soon as I left the room she started crying so hard and coughing and choking. We u went back in an lay down she settled but jet checking I wad there.  My back and shpullers can't take much more of lying on the floor never mind the tiredness.

Nursery today so that should be another fun night x

Well I think we ate having some progres.  Bt is still awful but on Friday she woke twice in the night and self settled. Then yesterday she self settled twice then I had to go in and lie down at 5:30 with her for 10 mins.

Her day yesterday was

WU 7:27
Nap 12:06 - 14:10 ( I had to wake her to go out)
BT 19:25 was aiming for 7

Do you think the nw's are still ot since I woke her from her nap?

Yes, possibly, upset in the early hours is often OT...but you had to go out so not much you could do...
Maybe she'll do a longer catch up nap today or settle more easily for bed?
