not sure why your little one is waking during the night so it's alittle hard to give ideas..lol but i've found that if i leave my little guy for afew minutes before responding, he usually resettles himself.. unless there is something really wrong of corse.. It took awhile for him too do this though.. i started out waiting just 2 mins b4 going to him.. then after resettling him, i'd leave him again this time if he cried out again, i'd wait 4mins.. each time extending it by 2mins... After afew nights he realised i wasn't gonna come staight away. but also that i was still around and hadn't gone anywhere.. so now he just settles himself..
Hope that's been of some help..Lol
Good Luck on geeting some much needed sleep!
