DD1 is 2.3 and has never really self settled. We had a phase a few months ago when she slept through but only after doing CC with the help of a sleep consultant. Then DH was away for 6 nights and I couldn't do it in my own and we were back to square one.
DD2 has now arrived and DD1's sleeping is as bad as ever. She wakes 3-4 times a night and needs DH to go in to her. We literally don't know what to do any more.
I think one of the problems is that DH isn't very consistent with bedtime or what happens when they go upstairs. Sometimes he gets her out of the cot for a hug, sometimes doesn't, sometimes sleeps on the floor in her room.
This morning she was up at 5am. I think we need a plan that is the same every day. Does anyone gave any tips? We are all suffering - DD1 is constanty tired and moaning, DH is the same and I can't bear it any more!
I think she does need a little bit of help but I don't know what that should be. Please send any ideas this way!!
