My daughter is now 17 months old and for the last almost 4 weeks now is not sleeping properly.
On occasion she will sleep through with no problems but more often than not she has been waking for up to 4 hours during the middle of the night and not going back to sleep.
She is given a bottle but we don't pick her up, she used to just roll over and go back to sleep, now she lies there awake. If you leave her she will just cry and cry becoming more and more distressed.
We have tried using natural remedies to calm her down and giving her cuddles etc but she just wakes up again and starts crying again.
You can see she is clearly exhausted but nothing I do helps, eventually after around 4 hours she has another bottle and goes back to sleep due to not being able to keep her eyes open.
I need help, any suggestions?? I can't keep doing this I am super super tired
