Is your dd in a sleeping bag? It can help prevent standing up. I did cc with my ds at 8months and it was very successful. He never hit himself on the cot (but he does have a placid nature) and it was TOTALLY worth it.

My Dh used to get in a right state if oue sons were standing up crying in their cot. I could never see what difference it made..

never tried the sleeping bag, she throws the cover off at night (even in the winter) but i might try and just put her in ashort baby gro.

i'm just afraid she'll topple and go ang and wail wail wail and then it'll be much harder to settle her

I really recommend the sleeping bag. She might even be waking up because she's thrown off her covers and got cold.

I had the same thing with my dd Hermykne. I was worried too but realised that eventually sh'll have to lean how to lie down and resettle anyway so we did cc with no probs. It only took a short time for her to learn to lie down. HTH

LOL sobenow. I know I shouldn't but the act of nailing a door seems really funny
