how long is reasonable to leave them control crying? I understand about the checking on them process and not picking them up, but my very determined 18 month old has been 'control crying' now for 2 and half hours and still no signs of letting up.

awww bless her, i had the same problem with my 2 year old daughter, 1st night was 2 hours, but everytime she cried i went to her and put her in bed, up and down like a yo yo, in the end we put a tv and dvd player in her room with in the night garden on really low, and on repeat! and it works, a little noise in the background and not too dark. now she goes to bed no problem so far!! and when she wakes in night i just say in bed and top up her drink, and change her bum all in bed, and she goes back to sleep again, hope that helps good luck xxx
