My 9 months old DD used to sleep in her crib (sometimes 7 hours straight) until she was three months old. Then she started waking up every hour and after few days i was so exhausted i started to bring her in bed with us. So she is still sleeping with us, waking at least 3-4 times during the night. I love having her with us, it's easier to meet her night needs but the main problem is that she is sleeping only when i'm beside her. If i try to sneak out of bed she is up immediately or at most in 15 minutes. That would even be fine with me if she would like nap alone but she doesn't. Every time i tried to put her down she is up crying. If i try to lie next to her and sneak out she is also up. I don't have hart to try cry it out method, but it's hard to get anything done, even to prepare her food, with this kind of sleeping arrangement. I'm ok most of time with all of this but i miss having some private time with my husband. Please, if you have any suggestions or similar experience i would be very happy to read about it. Thanks!
