How can i get her to sleep through the night?

my daughter is 15 months old. the problem is that she keeps waking up at night to check if i am still there. she stands in her crib and starts whining. it happens like 3 or 4 times a night... i calm her down and she goes back to sleep. but what can i do to make her finally sleep through the night?

  • if you are giving her a bottle or juice to go back to sleep.. try water and then eventually she will stop waking herself up to get a drink b/c most arent too fond of water. It may take a couple days but hang in there. If she is in your room and checkin up on you then put her in her own room and get her a item she can connect with to help her sooth herself

  • i used the ferber method. it was really helpful. its a KINDER way to let them cry it out. it encourages the child to soothe themselves back to sleep... which is nice....i know i got tired of having to get up to just spend 5 mins putting her back to sleep lol

  • Have you tried just letting her COI?

  • put a article of your clothing by her while she sleeps so she will have your scent.

  • Let her cry ,if you know she is all right it does not hurt to let her cry herself back to sleep, she will finaly understand that isn't going to work any more. Just went through this with my sons girlfriend little boy and he is not for the worse and he is sleeping through the night. I know it is hard listening to the crying but it is worse if your not getting your sleep, you need to be healthy for your family. If you have any more Questions just ask.
