Hi guys I'm really struggling with bedtimes... My daughter is 11month and from being tiny I have taken her upstairs in her cot at 7.00 after a fed and lay her down to go to sleep and left the room so she's used to sleeping without me. The past fortnight has been awful though she will not go to bed unless I am stood over her cot holding her hand or tapping her back. Even when I think she settled and go to leave she screams and stands up. I no people say to leave them and go back in the room to put them back down which is what I've been doing normally I leave her about 5mins which feels like a really long time when she's crying yesterday I left her 15mins but she was stopping for a short while in between out bursts. Tonight if was then me 1 hour and 35mins to get her to sleep after constantly going in laying her down and leaving again. I'm so stress and upset by it please help I'm dreading bedtimes xx
