I don't kbnow how we come to this point were my daughter won't sleep but I must say it is driving me MAD!. She constantly wakes every night usually 3-4 times a night and usually the only way I can get her to sleep is to bring her into our bed then usually she goes to sleep straight away. This is one problem my other problem is to try and get her sleep this is a mission in itself. We took her dummy away from about 4 months old as she would wake during the night as she had lost it, that was fine straight away she slept through until she started teething she got 2 teeth at once then another 2 teeth a couple of week later she had 4 teeth by 6 months. All I think think is that when it all started she would go to bed by herself I had to give her a bottle to go to sleep and then she would sleep through.
Her day sleeps are also a mission. For this I usually have to rock her to sleep or give her a bottle or try and arrange trips in the car around the time she would sleep so that she sleeps in the car.
She is a very determined and strong willed little girl. I am at the moment trying to get accepted to a sleep clinic in Brisbane called the Riverton Centre so if there are any mums out there who have been here I would love to know how it went.
Sorry for the essay but I am at my wits end and just need to talk to someone who is in the same situation as me.As she is my first child I am not sure how to handle this is just seems that I am constantly fixing a problem with another problem.
