Hi ladies. I need some suggestions on how to get my baby to sleep by herself. She is 7 months old.
A month or so ago she was sick and while she was sick, I'd sleep holding her in the recliner so that she was upright and I could monitor her fever. Ever since then, I can't get her to stay in her crib all night.
When she first falls asleep for the night, I can lay her down in her crib. She only sleeps 3 or 4 hours before she wakes up screaming. I get her to calm down and go back to sleep but after that, I she won't sleep in her crib. It doesn't matter if I wait 5 minutes or an hour after she goes back to sleep, as soon as I start to bend over to put her in her crib, she wakes up and starts crying again.
Some nights I've repeated the get her to sleep, wait, try to lay her down and she wakes up crying for more than 2 hours to try and get her to sleep on her own.
