At 7 months (end of april) we did some gentle sleep training and we got to the point where we could put her down drowsy, we also ditched the swaddle and crib nest, introduced a lovie, and worked on naps. She still woke up at 1 and 5 to eat and would go back to sleep.
Since then she got 2 bottom teeth and is working on her top teeth. Learned how to roll well, started crawling, pulling up and how to go from laying down to sitting to standing in her crib.
Needless to say she is no longer sleeping well. We're back to nursing and rocking to sleep. She's still waking up 2-3 times a night. I find her sitting in the crib mostly asleep or standing crying. Sometimes she just nibbles at 1am (ish) other times she'll go back to sleep without a fuss or feeding. so i think we can safely drop this feeding.
My sleep training methods that worked the first time arent working because now she'll just stand and cry. She won't settle herself and god forbid my husband try to help out and get up with her, she screams blood murder. We dont have a video monitor so i really dont feel comfortable with CIO for extended times. And in a battle of wills i'm pretty sure she would win.
Help? Please i'm getting desperate....
The other night she went to bed at 8:30 and was up from 10:40pm-1:40pm. I wanted to die at work the next day.
