Is there another method of teaching my 6mth old baby to settle to sleep alone other than letting her cry? At times she will go down alone but other times she will scream until i go in. It breaks my heart to hear her so upset! She arches her back, and gets so wound up i have to go in. We have a great evening routine: dinner, bath, bottle, story, sleep. we have tried soft music/mobiles etc but they seem to excite her. She has a teddy for comfort which seems to help.
