I have a 16 month old daughter and i am getting up at least four times a night to put the dummy back in to settle her down, i have tried doing it slowly and then tried cold turkey for two weeks but we did not get anywhere, so i am looking for other options to help get her and my sleep patterns back on track. Please help before i go insane!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it possible that the baby isn't feeling well? In my experience it has taken 3 days and the child learns to self soothe. My DD was 10 months old it took 3 days. The first day she cried for 15 mins, the second day was 10 mins, the 3rd day, not at all. My son was 6 months old and it took a little more time with me rubbing his back at night. Maybe her ears hurt. Good luck.
