She starts off in her crib but then when she wakes up she will not go back to sleep unless she sleeps in with me and her daddy. She is 12 months old and still needs milk during the night too. Help!Answer Question
For all of time mothers have slept with and breastfed their young children at night. It's normal for children to wake at night and nurse until they are 2 or 3.

It's hard to change "normal" developmental behavior. Part of the reason humans survived was because mothers slept with their young and nursed at night. Even if she is/was bottle fed it is normal for human children to sleep with their mothers and nurse at night. If they are breastfed some toddlers may need to eat in the middle of the night. It shows how smart your daughter is that she wants to sleep with you and eat at night despite your efforts to change her behaviors. I mean that in a good way. Night bottles can cause bottle mouth tooth decay so doctors and dentists discourage parents giving toddlers bottles at night.
