    Oh, and if I were to wake her a little to disrupt her sleep cycle, I do it before she wakes up crying right? So just guesstimate when she would wake up and do it like 10 minutes before that?

    I always picked her up. And also tried to soothe her/ wake her up by walking around the house, talking or singing to her. She also had her eyes open but was not responding as if she was awake. Once woken up, she would stop crying and go back to sleep straight away. This is why I thought, it might be dreams/ night terrors.

    Sounds similar for sure, I'll pick her up and she would cry and look like she was looking at me but not registering and continue to cry and when I let her look at the street she would stop crying (worked twice) and then passed out almost straight away

    I would disrupt things 15-30 minutes before when they normally happen. Basically you often find the child with their eyes open but not 'awake' or responding like they are awake. Once they do wake up, it's usually a few sniffles and then back to bed.

    Nursing is probably the best pacifier but I would take out her to the doctor to rule out reflux definitely. My now 15 month old was a terrible sleeper until she started walking. She also loved being close to me as co-sleeping was the best solution for us for night wakings. I co-slept with her for almost an entire year (until I weaned her from night nursing) and now she sleeps thru the night every night in her own bed.

    Hi Karhu, same thing happened with my boy when he was a baby. I was co-sleeping with him too like evgreen. I also took him to an osteopath (in Singapore) who specialised in craniosacral therapy on children. I don't know if it really helped, but I did notice a slight reduction in the frequency of the screaming at night. Basically I was desperate, ready to try anything!!! However, you may find that if you give your baby a relaxing light massage before bedtime she may sleep better and happier. Don't worry, she will grow out of it!!
