Ok so my daughter is 7 1/2 months and has only slept thru the night 3 or 4 times since birth. Our doctor told me to do the "wait 5 monutes the first time she wakes up before you go in, 10 monutes the 2nd, etc. and put her down with water and thats all she gets in the night".
She eats solids and eats a good amount during the day. Could it be she just still wants to visit in the night? Does anyone have any tricks or tips on how you got your child to do it? I am going to try the doctors suggestion but i just cant quite bring myself to let her cry (im a sucker that way, probably why she still gets up).
