Re: sleep help!

My DD is still like this many nights at 18 months, especially when she is in pain from teething.

Does she nurse to sleep (or need the paci to fall back asleep) every time she wakes up? She could just be used to falling asleep with the boob, and doesn't know how to fall back to sleep without it. All babies (and adults) wake several times throughout the night, it's just learning to get back to sleep on their own that keeps them from crying. The author of the No Cry Sleep Solution has a method of gradually teaching your baby to fall asleep without nursing. It is in the book (obviously lol) but here is a link explaining it:

(I have no experience with this, as we cosleep and I'm lazy so just choose to nurse my DD back to sleep every time, so I have no personal experience with this )
