Why since my 19 month old was sick will she not self settle anymore? – My 19 month old daughter got sick about 3 months ago. Now she won’t go to sleep by herself anymore. The only way she will sleep is if we take her for a drive. We have tried letting her cry it out but she cries so much she vomits and then it’s change sheets and in the car. I am so tired. She’s not going down until around 10pm each night and then will wake up at 3am unable to put herself back down. Also when I mention bed or try to put her in her cot she clings to me and whimpers. Some nights I am getting only 4 hours sleep. (Which over a week is not good) Please any advice would be greatly appreciated. I want my sleep and my sanity back!
