My baby is nearly 9 months and she has always slept through from 8 weeks, and for the last month hasn't we've always tried to have routine but she'll go down 630-730 anywhere inbetween she is teething and been giving her calpol and abnesol teething gel, she just wants to fall asleep on me and I try put her in cot when she's half asleep and try and stay in room till she's gone but it's hard work at night just didn't know if anyone had any suggestions, I can't do controlled crying just my personal opinion

9 month development leap. (Comes up on here at least daily.). She's getting ready to walk.

Try Ashton and parsons powders for the teething. And calpol/baby nurofen for the pain

It's also a key time some separation anxiety. Can you bedshare?

We can but last night she sleeps horizontal and takes up most of the bed I do though when I'm at work next day if I haven't got energy for it, I do give calpol etc il have to try Ashton's powder and yeah she is trying to stand as it is she fights her sleep at nap time it's usually she'll drop to sleep when she wants because she fights it xx
