Tips on getting a 7 month old to sleep through the night

I did exactly what a parent shouldn't do to create bad habits when sleeping, I've been holding my now almos 7 year old for most of the night! She will go down for a few hours in her crib but wakes up a few hours later and will not go back down in the crib. If I let her fuss a bit, I go in there to find her legs hanging out the side . Right now she's teething so she's been extra fussy , she doesn't always want a bottle but I'm exhausted and tired of sleeping on the couch with her. She also doesn't take a pacifier

She will sleep through the night when she is ready to do so. Some sleep through the night young... some don't do it for several years. Holding your child is not a 'bad habit'... it's natural.
