Every nap time I carry L upstairs, change her into the sleeping bag, put Pampers baby-dry, close the curtains and sit with her until she falls asleep. By saying sleeping I mean L cries a lot, screams or just turns on tummy and plays with cot bar.
I have also noticed that if L wakes up at 9am feeding every 4 hours doesn't work.
The more I think about it the more I realise that maybe it's not right, or not for us. She can't fall asleep without my help, she wakes up and cries/screams, it seems that if I stay with her this will not teach her how to fall asleep on her own, how to wake up without mummy. At the same time we have tried controlled crying and L will scream the house down, sometimes will scream and won't fall asleep or will give up and fall asleep. So what is best for us?
