I still feed my nearly 18 month old dd to sleep. She was ill with D&V a couple of weeks ago and since then it's taking up to a flipping hour each night to get her to sleep. Previously it took ten mins and she was showing signs of growing out of it. What can I do? I feel like we've been set back about 6 months.
After an hour she had her eyes shut and I thought she was finally going to sleep. Then she sat up, again. I called DH in to sit with her, I'm really starting to lose patience! She hasn't cried surprisingly, I would have gone back in if she did. I've heard her speak once since and he shhshhed her. Just go to bloody sleep! I
I stupidly went in thinking she'd probably 'go quietly' when I got back. I was wrong, she started messing about again. DH is back there now singing to her, she's actually wide awake now saying 'again!' after every song I wonder what will happen if I just don't go back? It kind of feels like giving in if I do and setting myself up for doing this (taking hours business) every night.
