So I'm having trouble with DD (10mths) sleeping at night. Normally she is great, I have a routine and she puts herself to sleep, I only get up to her once or twice a night if at all and she sleeps in her cot. Lately she has been going to be at the usual time of 6:45pm but waking up and yelling at 8:30pm. I go in lay her back down (she stands up in the cot and yells) tuck her back in and she goes back to sleep. BUT then she will wake again at about 10ish and wont want to go back to sleep. In the past when she has gone through periods of not sleeping well I've brought her in with us and that has only lasted one or two nights. But now if I bring her in with us she either lays there kicking and scratching me, or trying to stand up on the head board.
She has been sleeping fine during the day, nothing changed in her eating/drinking/nappies, she has cut two teeth recently but I can't see any signs of more teething. She has been cranky which I put down to not sleeping.
I've tried giving her a bottle which doesn't work or will get her to sleep for 4hrs, I've given her panadol and bonjella which did nothing, I've put less or more rugs on and I've taken her temp.
So what the heck is her problem???????
I don't like co-sleeping, it isn't for me, I like my space and with DD and DH in the bed I end up twisted like a pretzel. The only reason I've done it in the past is that DH can't stand to listen to her yell/cry, and I've needed sleep.
Can anyone suggest something that might help?
Sorry it's so long.
OOOHHH... INTERNET FIGHT. WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO? CAPS LOCK ME TOO DEATH?
