My baby wakes at least once in the night, She is 16 months old.
We have tried controlled crying, getting her in our bed, going in every 5 mins, decorating her room, soft toys, sitting with her till she falls asleep. Many techniques.. they all seem to fail and she continues to wake. We currently use going in every 5 mins to settle her and then leave quickly, this still takes over an hour most nights before she eventually falls asleep. We've tried picking a technique and sticking to it for months on end but nothing changes. She sleeps through probably once a fortnight, I am contemplating just leaving her for longer intervals as seeing me deeply upsets her. How long can I leave her, some of my friends leave their toddlers for over half an hour and they seem to be having a better time of it than me. I havent slept properly for over a year and am exhausted.. any ideas please help
