my 14 month old daughter wakes up twice during the night the first time she gets her bottle and settles her self back down the second time she screams and if i dont go through straight away she makes her self sick!! also i was in the shower the other day my partner was in the living room and she screamed at the bathroom door for ten mins and made her self sick!!! my partner tried to clam her!!! is it just attention or is it because i have been giving her to much attention!! she is my first child and i still have to cozy her in at night as she wont settle so is it my fault??????

Sounds exactly like separation anxiety. It's a normal phase of development and not your fault. More comfort and attention would actually be my approach.

No it's not too much attention it's separation anxiety and it usually peaks in toddlers between 10-18 months. The more yo try to push her to be independent the more dependent on you she will become so try to be nurturing and understanding during this difficult phase. If you google it you can find ways to help her adjust.
