hi again
i have another problem LOL
my lil girl is 9months old and refuses to sleep in her cot at night. she'll sleep in it during the day but wont at night she'll go down but then in 3hours sometimes less shes up and will only go to sleep in my bed. iv tried sleeping with one of her blankets incase it was my smell, iv tried wrapping her up tight incase she needed that, iv even tried leaving her tv on over night but thats not working. i dont know what else to try i dont know what it is about my bed that she likes as soon as her head hits the pillows shes gone but if you pick her up straight after to lay her down she wakes up.
if anyone has any ideas i would be very grateful i want my bed back LOL
thanks

Can try putting her to bed, then going in every 5 mins laying her back down and going back out til she goes to sleep. Watched this on Supernanny or something, it does work but after a few days and can be very stressful, but don't take her back out the room because you'll be back to step 1. Don't put her on your bed either, I used to let Cait fall asleep on the sofa, so when I tried getting her into a routine it was hard, is she in her own room? I only ever have Cait in my bed if she is ill but thats rarely.

yer shes got her own room iv tried sitting in her room with her until she goes to sleep but as soon as shes laid down shes awake iv been up ALL night with her before but then as soon as shes in my bed shes awake coz it gets to a point when i cant phiscally stay up any longer.
my husband is useless he sleeps through everything so i have to do it all on my own i get no help havent since the day she was born!! its so hard! coz she sleeps in her cot during the day. i never knew a 9month old was gonna be this hard to get to sleep in their own bed LOL

I wouldn't stay in the room with her, because she is going to think your gonna be in there every night. How does she go off during the day?

Aaralyn had problems going to sleep and also waking up and then not wanting to go back to sleep... I made the mistake of letting her fall asleep to baby einstein dvd's and now she is in the habit of falling asleep to one of her favorates every night... I don't suggest that either... I regret letting that become the habit as I now wish she would just fall asleep to quietness LOL... good luck hun, I know I wasn't much help, if any Shrug

i think u may find that the problem is probably down to her getting confused,if your putting her to sleep in her cot in the day as well as night shes not knowing the difference between nap time and sleep time.you should aim to put them sleep somewhere else during the day,be it on the sofa,in their buggy.and also if u havent got one already,invest in a blackout blind,so they can distinguish the light from dark.
her having her daily naps,she knows this is only a couple of hours,so when its time to put her to bed for the night,shes sleeping in her nap spot,so to her,its a few hours sleep again.try keeping her downstares for naps - it will make a big difference trust me! it will take a few weeks as its a change of her routine,but she will be gettin her sleep she needs aswell as u will too! Thumbs Up
