My little girl is 8 months old today and I've reached breaking point. She has never been a great sleeper and wakes regularly. At around 7 months she was finally sleeping for 3 hr sessions through the night which made such a difference to my quality of life. This lasted about 2 weeks and then we were back to 1-2hr wake ups all night. In the last week she has been waking and not going back to sleep for at least an hour every 1.5hrs and I just can't do it anymore!
We have tried strict bedtime routines for months and then tried not so strict. I've tried food before bed, no food before bed. Baths, camomile tea, massage, white noise, Co sleeping. Everything I can think of except for cry it out which I am not comfortable with.
Please does anyone have any suggestions? I just want to curl up in a ball.
