I am having trouble getting my 7 mo old to sleep at night. I'm ready to crack! 7mos of not one full night's sleep will do that to you. On average, it takes an hour EVERY night to get her down. I have tried to get her into a routine....didn't work. Changed the routine....didn't work. This included putting her down drowsy, yet awake...nope!
I truly believe in not creating bad habits, but I am starting to bc that's the only way she will go to sleep. Every night, I have to rock her in my arms. Even then, the minute I put her down, she wakes up and won't settle.
I don't believe in the 'crying it out' method, although, I will let her cry for a bit sometimes.
She used to go down ok, not great, but it's only getting worse. She started to sit at 6 mos, has been trying to crawl since right after and is still not there. And now she JUST started sitting up from laying on her tummy, so that's all she wants to do when she wakes.
Can any provide any suggestions that will help? I'm desperate!
