My daughter has always been brilliant when it came to bed time. Come 7.30pm she took a drink of milk and walked herself to the door waving goodnight as she went (she only needed me to help her into her cot) and when in bed she went to sleep herself.
She was recently ill but is better now. During the period of 2 weeks she was sick she was up alot during the night with pain and couldnt or wouldnt go to her own bed by herself, falling asleep on my knee.
Now she is better i want her to go back to normal but it seems like i am starting from square 1 with a new born!
She is 16 months now and i know that she doesnt need night feeding. but she is getting up at 10pm and screeching, so i go in to calm her down and end up spending till 1am in and out of her room calming her down putting her back and leaving (only takes about 10 seconds from me leaving the room for her to cry again) and having to go back in and at 1 i just gave up last night and ended up giving her a bottle of milk and she went to sleep.
I no that i shouldnt but i am just so tired.
Should i just ignore her crying or because of not i need some advise!!
She is too old for a night feed
