Answer Any tips for sleep training a 19 month old?
I would love to hear from some other Mums on their tips for sleep training a 19 month old. Our son is still waking 2-3 times a night and at the moment I have been resorting to getting up and giving him a bottle of milk (heavily diluted with water). This does get him back off to sleep but he will… usually wake again a couple of hours later for another one. I did train him to sleep using controlled crying at around 8 months and it worked, however after a holiday away staying with friends I slipped back into the bottles so that we wouldn’t be disturbing others too much. I tried again last week to use controlled crying but it was horrible. He got so upset I couldn’t hold out. Perhaps this is because he is much older now? Has anyone had similar problems? I would love to hear any advice or stories that you may have that would help.
