My eight-month-old daughter is still not sleeping through the night. We've had a couple of fluke nights that are bliss, but for the most part she's up twice per night. I'm at my whit's end! She wakes up for feedings, which I'm finding out she needs more for routine's sake now. I have tried to pick her up and soothe her, then put her back in bed. This just makes her scream louder. Her bed is in our room, and every time she ever goes to sleep we put her in bed while she's still awake. I'm trying to figure a way to do this without her shrieking waking everyone else up (hubbie who works in the morning and a toddler).
I usually will try to stuff her to the gills with food right before I go to bed, so I know that she can't be THAT hungry. We did try a crying-out method, which I regret, because she screamed for about an hour before I finally said "enough is enough". I don't know what to do and my days are about to start a lot earlier with taking care of a friend's 6-week-old while she goes back to work. I'm tired as it is! Help!
