My daughter is 5 months old and sleeps right through most nights. However if she does wake up for a feed during the night I battle to settle her again once she goes back into her cot. She is happy to fall asleep in my arms but as soon as I put her in the cot her she opens her eyes and is wide awake. I have tried everything I can think of. If I leave her to settle on her own she plays for a while and is happy until she wants her dummy (if it has fallen out) and then she gets niggly. This can go on for ages. Some nights it takes over 2 hours to get her back to sleep. As a last resort I put her in bed with me for about half an hour or more and then transfer her back into the cot. Can you give me any advice please? Do you have any advice on settling a 5month old at night?
