my youngest girl will be nine months in june and she only sleeps like two hours at a time and then she is awake. when she wakes up she doesn't want any more to drink just for me to hold her. so when i pick her up she goes back to sleep on my shoulder and then i put her down and she is good for a couple more hours. i am running out of energy getting up that much at night and i have a two year old as well so our day normal begins at 7:30 am. helpAnswer Question
You HAVE to stop picking her up!! Go in an place your hand on her for a few minutes, maybe play some soft music.... she needs to learn to fall asleep on her own. You may have to do this for a while so her gets the hint. Right now she has you trained to pick her up vs you having her trained to fall back asleep on her own!! We used the "Fisher-Price Rainforest Waterfall Peek-a-Boo Soother" for music at bed time. Our kids would wake up an hit the button, watch it for a few minutes and fall back asleep... it was a life saver!!
