Hi I am looking for some suggestions for my baby girl. She is 10 months and is still not sleeping through the night, she usually gets to sleep ok but wakes up around 2 am then again at 5am screaming for about an hour to an hour and half on bad nights at a time. My son who is now three was easy we let him scream it out at six months and by night four was sleeping through the night and never looked back. My daughter is the opposite, we have struggled to get her to this point as she was very ok with waking up every two hour up until 7 months. I go back to work in 3 weeks and desperately looking to have her sleeping better. We have been very consistent with letting her cry herself to sleep, but doesn't feel like we are winning this battle. At the beginning we did try and give her back her soother (which she is not a big fan of) but found that any progress she made was diminished by going to her at night. Any thought/ideas would be appreciated.
