my daughter is 16 mnths and started doing this about a week ago. at first we just put her to sleep ourselves bcuz every once n awhile she has a bad night, but after 2 nights we just did our normal routine and put her bed and left her room (with a night light on). she cried for 5-15 minutes for 3 nights and so far is doing well again when going to bed. naps usually arent a prblm for us

I'm going through the exact same thing right now. I need help!! I was up till 4 am last night and had to get up for work at 7 am. She's been like this for a week now and I'm getting soooo exhausted. What worked for you?

Do you have a night light in the room? How about soothing music? We never really went through this except when we were teaching him to go down on his own, but we would just go in and check on him to let him know we were still there. Im guessing its a phase
