Description:
She's 6 months old. She will only sleep through the night if she is in bed with us. Nothing seems to work. The doctor said to let her cry for up to an hour or two? Does that sound right? I dont think. How should I get her to sleep through the night? We've tried everything,

How do you recommend I get my daughter to sleep through the night like she used to.

    Yes let her cry, I know its hard to leave her. She's already learned what to do to get your attention and keep it, even at 6 months old. Lay something with her that is yours that might help , she just needs to know your near. Try not to let her crying upset/worry you. Keeping you in prayer.

    is she full at bedtime? have you tried cereal for bedtime? Putting her in bed with you she will always want to sleep with you. Crying will not hurt her.

    Try to find somthing that sooothes her or evertime she wakes just stand next to her telling her its ok and stroking her hair or arm or wherever it soothes her!! Thats what works for my daughter. Just reassure her ur there. Im to the point where if she wakes a little i just say im here its ok go nite nite and she does.

    If you're not comfortable letting her cry it out... don't!
    But you will have to be consistant... As absolutely tiring as it will be you have to keep putting her back in her bed once she falls back to sleep.
    Do it over the weekend. If you normally rock her to sleep or rub her back or whatever do it all her in her room, in her bed. And everytime she wakes up keep her in her room and put her back into her crib. As hard as it will be to probably be up almost all nihgt long they say it only takes a baby 3 days to get into a routine.
    I got into the habit of letting my son fall asleep while he drank a bottle. So I finally got the courage ot break him of this habit at 5 months. He screamed and cried for his bottle, but he wasn't hungry, and I just held him and rocked him and he finally fell asleep. And when he woke in the middle of the night I did the same. I was SOOOOOOOOO tempted to give him the bottle because I knew he'd go to sleep, but i needed to break him of the habit. Once he got used to it he started sleeping through the nihgt again and it was all worth it in the end.... You have to stick to your guns because in the end it WILL be worth it! Good luck
