Hi I have a 13 month old baby whom we have had sleeping problems with since she was 6 months old. She would wake so many times in the night that we just resorted to putting her in bed with us and then she got used to that and wouldn't sleep in her cot. So at the beging of August just before she turned one we went to sleep school where we did controlled comforting and she only slept through the night on the last night we were there. For the next two weeks at home she would only wake once a night at about 4:30am and after a rewrap she would resettle and go back to sleep until about 7:00am, which I could handle but now that I am back at work she is back to her old tricks and wakes up and she will scream for a good hour to two hours a night, she will go to sleep after that but wakes again between 4:00am-5:00am where by this time I'm just so tired that we pick her up and put her in bed with us. What can we do I fell I have tried everything, we even took her dummy away when we were at sleep school and that has made abit of a difference. I think she wakes her self up when she gets her arms out of her wrap but if I don't wrap her she stands up at the side of the cot and just screams and screams. I'm open to any advice.
