I let my 17 mo old cry it out last night. Opinions, advice, etc.??
She is 17 month sold and has been waking in the night every night for as long as I can remember. We go in and put her pacifier back in and she will usual,y go back to sleep. And there are times she cries and we have to get her calmed back down or rock. And I have been nursing her every morning between 5-6:30. She goes to bed at 9 and I make sure her belly is full. Well she woke up last night at 4 Nd my hubby went in and put her pacifier back in and the. She woke again at 4:30 and we both said that it is crazy that she still wakes and is 17 months old. I think she cries because she knows someone will come running she puts herself to sleep at both naps and at bedtime every day so why can't she in the middle of the night. We are both tired And thought we would try something different last night. She cried from 4:30-5:00 a d then not a whimper until 8:30. So if she ws hungry, wouldn't she had woken before then? I don't like her to cry but sometimes I think it is best to go ahead and break bad hats. We have 10 pacifiers in the crib it isn't like she can't find one and put it in. So don't you think if she really gets up to eat she would have woken before 8:30?
