Oh help! DD has been a good sleeper for about a year now, 7.30 to 7.30 with the occasional night time waking or early morning but never anything dramatic. We also now have an 8 week old DS, who she is very fond of and he hasn't really affected her sleep.
So Christmas day she refused to go to sleep, screaming for her daddy in her cot, floods of tears. I think I know when she's 'angry crying' or just whinging, but she was genuinely upset I think. We brought her down (the house was full of people) put it down to the excitement of the day and took her to bed with us when we went. (tried a couple of times to put her to bed in cot but she was having none of it) She eventually fell asleep around midnight.
Boxing day night same thing. We left her to cry, after 15 mins she was hysterical and sounded out of control. I went in to calm her and she couldn't calm down and then she was sick
I went and slept in the spare room with DS (really no room for 4 in a bed!). She slept in my bed with DH, happy as a pig in shit,
Last night exactly the same. She's won hasn't she?! I'm no longer in my bed and she is! She's also been VERY clingy with DH since last week, no interest in me really, just wants daddy the whole time.
She usually has a nap of 2 hrs between 12 and 2 but has started freaking out for that as well.
What should I do?! I need a plan! Is this separation anxiety? Just a two year old playing up? Is it because I'm with the baby the whole time?
Sorry this is so long. Any wise words much appreciated, my brain is frazzled...
Omg same here with 20mo ds who I currently in a right state in his cot I've been pick up put down and cc but he actually seems upset and shaking so pupd seemed kinder but seems to be winding him up more We tried cot side off which was a disaster I'm and joining you for
