My 21 month old daughter wakes through the night crying out for "mummy" and it usually ends in us putting her into our bed so we can all sleep - a big no-no, I know! If i don't pick her up straight away she screams hysterically, last night we tried controlled crying and this lasted for 1 and a half hours in the middle of the night, but she did go to sleep eventually on her own. Putting her to bed at night also is a crying match but usually only lasts 20 minutes max. I have just extended her bedtime till 7.30pm now and she has one day sleep which is normally about and hour and a half long. Does anyone else have this problem? She is also very reliant on her dummy and we're considering moving her to a big bed. So many things to deal with!! Can anyone advise me how to go about fixing the sleep problem, the dummy problem and the big bed decision? Should I go cold turkey with dummy and do controlled crying to begin with? I would desparately love for her to enjoy sleeping peacefully every night. I would love to hear from mums who are going through similiar times.
