My little girl is now 9 months old and up until a couple of weeks ago I used to be able to put her down in her cot and she would fall asleep without much fuss and stay alseep. Lately I put her in her cot and she cries and cries. I have tried letting her cry for a few minutes then I go in so she knows I'm there and leave her and she cries a few more minutes then I go back again, and so on and so on...she just won't fall asleep on her own anymore. Just to get her to sleep I have had to do what I didn't want to start doing and that is I have had to nurse her to sleep and then when I put her down she wakes up straight away and cries.
She has also started to wake through the night...some nights after a drink she will go back to sleep and some nights she wants to play, while our eyes are hanging out of our heads, and some nights she just doesn't seem to know what she wants.
I was just wondering whether this is just a faze babies go through or whether it is something else? She has always been a pretty good sleeper...my 3 year old son is just a terrible sleeper so I did have one of both...a good and a bad, but lately it has turned into both bad sleepers...too hard to handle! I love my sleep!
What should or do I do to help fix this?
