So as I have mentioned we went back over sleep training and this time we tried the "crying it out" method. Despite me saying I would never use it, I have well and truly eaten my words and to be honest We needed to do this.
It worked so well, I am so so pleased. This week has been the first week that we have managed to have full nights sleep and with our bed to ourselves!
We did the method like this...
5 mins to cry and then go in and settle.
Leave for another 5 mins and then go and settle.
By the third go she had gone to sleep! It has taken a couple of days of this and now I think she has well and truly sussed it! In the morning its all smiles and giggles, I have even had a couple of lay-ins too!
So lesson learnt, don't knock a method until you have tried it!!
