I put her down awake after her bedtime feed and settled her in all nice and snug.
she was in tears the moment i stood up to walk out the door.
i left her for one minute then went back in. i offered her some water, lay her down and patted her bum until she was almost asleep. walked out and she went nuts.
then waited 2 minutes and went back in. did same again.
when i left her for 3 minutes, during that time she vomited everywhere from crying so much so i had to change the sheets, comfort her and start all over again.
managed to get up to 5 minutes and then just before i was "due" to go in to her, she fell asleep.
i feel soooo bad for the fact that she was so upset and crying and that she vomited. i feel even worse at the fact that she was calling my name and sobbing for me. but i do feel slightly 'victorious' that i got her to go to bed, on her own, without being fed to sleep.
thanks for those that gave me advice and support the other night. hopefully i dont cave in my sleepy stupor tonight!
also, for those who have done CC, do you still leave them to cry even if they become hysterical? because ash became hysterical after only 30 seconds EVERY time.
