I feel like recently I've had so many questions as my daughter has done so much this month. She is now 7mths old and has started taking water from a beaker cup, feeding herself finger food, constantly wanting to stand up holding onto our hands and her babbles are more frequent. Our problem at the moment is that she has started her separation anxiety and this is breaking our bedtime routines as she protests everytime I put her in her cot. Shes started acknowledging herself in the mirror, she cries when I walk out of the room (even just to flick the kettle switch) And now at bedtime she will happily fall asleep in my arms in her nursery feeding chair but will wake up as I try to lower her into the cot and then screams Blue murder. Im thinking using the cry it out method but unsure what other options are out there as the sleep training articles ive read seem to be aimed more at babies who wake up more throughout the night and that's not our issue as once my lil girl is asleep she is out for the night until 7/8am. How did other mummys cope with this stage?
As always, thanks in advance xx
