Now in her bed she wakes 3-5 times a night

Have a 2 yr old girl and have just put her in her own big bed but when I`d put her to sleep I was lying with her till she fell asleep then I`d put her in her cot. She did wake occassionally in her cot but just ignored the crying cause she knew I`d come running. Now in her bed she wakes 3-5 times a nite have bed rail on and door shut (she cannot open door yet) with nite light on. Should I let her cry in bed and settle herself back to sleep cause at the moment I am laying with her again each time she wakes till she falls asleep again. It is tiring me out and I feel I am up an down all nite. I have a 6mth old boy and he is great don`t here from him at all. What advice can u give me.

Answer: Hi, I`m a midwife dealing with pregnancy, childbirth and newborns. It`s best to direct your sleep related questions to Maree, or see your Early Childhood Health Centre. Best wishes, Alex
