My daughter is 7 months old and I've tried everything (same routine, bath bottle bed, music, singing, reading) to get her to sleep before 12am! She will fall fast asleep with me, her dad, in the pram, on the sofa but the minute i put her in the cot she wakes up to crawl climb and giggle! Does anyone know why she does this? She wont sleep on her own so i always have to get her back to sleep again after trying to put her in the cot and sometimes i can be up until 2am with her! once she is asleep she will sleep for 10 hours! its just the stress of getting her there that is frustrating! any advice would be very much appreciated thankoo :) x

My dd was the same! Luckily for us the solution was to put her in a sleeping bag. Our dd found her bed cold and touching the cold sheet was what woke her. :) So simple, but it took us a while to figure. I hope you find a solution too and reclaim your evenings!
