|Setting up good sleep habits is a good idea. Sleep routines and being consistent are really important. So stick with it! Pick the route you want to go and stick with it. You can help your little one fall asleep on her own by continuing to do what your doing and at some point she will catch on.|
High-tech Hippie Mama to Dd1 (9/22/06), Dd2 (2/25/10) and Ds (05/27/2013). I eat Clean, cloth diaper, and spend way too much time online.

My DD was doing that for a while, probably around that same age. It was very frustrating. So I decided to stop stressing about it and forcing the issue and if she would clearly be so awake after I was trying to nurse her down, I'd let her run around and eventually she would nurse down. It was way better than forcing the issue and spending 2 hours frustrated that she just would not fall asleep!

I agree, and I wish it would work for us! We've done the consistent routine, baths with lavender, staying on schedule, we always have white noise & I tried a bunch of stuff from The No Cry Sleep Solution--short of anything resembling "training." Some children have a tougher time with sleep--it is good to control what you can, but having a poor sleeper doesn't necessarily mean you are doing anything wrong. Just as all children develop at their own pace, some take longer to sleep for long stretches or through the night.
|btw one thing i have found that helps is making sure their nutritional needs are met before bedtime. that way when the do start sleeping they dont miss the calories.
