we have gone through the CIO method several times and it does work. But after a couple of months of our 17 month old sleeping through the night, she has suddenly stopped. She plays for a little bit, and then starts crying like something has really freaked her out. Could it be separation anxiety , teething or just a case of plain old spoildness??? if i go in and check on her and then leave her she just starts wailing, and the same thing if my husband goes in. We are running out of options and are in serious need of some advise. So please if there is anyone out there that has gone through this, PLEAAAAASSSSEEE HELP US OUT.Answer Question

the way a one year old feels alone in a dark room in the middle of the night has nothing to do with being spoiled. Children have emotional needs too. Sometimes this involve needed physical contact. I have heard several moms talk about their child doing this. sometimes around this age, sometimes a different age. It seems to me that the waking may be due to some developmental thing they are going through. Teething could definitely do it. you can't make her stay asleep so you can let her cry, stay with her and comfort her until she goes back to sleep, or let her snuggle next to you in your bed. I don't recommend the first one. #2 would be best if your main concern is keeping her in her bed. #3would be best if your main concern is everyone getting some sleep.
