Can you go in to 'tuck her in' and calmly say 'goodnight darling' or whatever your normal thing to say is, then leave the room?

you may have to do the check and leave routine so she knows you have not compleatly left her,
go in kiss goodnight and leave

you may have to do it a few times before she sleeps,

i tell dd i am going to wash up then i will be back

stay strong
