Dd is 19 months up until the last week she has self settled at bedtime and slept 7 til 7, but all of a sudden she's really unsettled, dh put her to bed 2 nights running as I wasnt in ( usually I put her to bed) she didn't settle well so he ended up in the cot with her-not sure if this has started it or it's coincidence but she screams if I try to leave the room at bedtime I have to stay and pat her until she's asleep, then she's waking around 4ish screaming mammy and I have to do the same thing then. Last night she woke every hour between 2 & 6 then was up for the day from 6.15 I'm shattered please tell me this is just a phase!

Can't offer any help but we're in exactly the same situation. I've been reading up on it and apparently there's a sleep regression at 18 months (ish). Here's hoping it passes quickly for all of us!

Happened to us at 19 months! Dd had slept through from 8.5 mo and then out of nowhere started night waking - it settled down again relatively quickly, if I remember.

I'm pleased it just sounds like a phase! Hope it settles quickly and for you too RDWRER I was tucked up in bed for 9.30 last night...makes me wonder how we ever coped when she was newborn and feeding every 2 hours at night!
