Hello there, I've been very fortunate to have a baby that not only went down to sleep without fuss, but also sleeps through the night, waking around 7am. However, two weeks ago we were on holiday and she had to sleep in the same room as us. When we came back last week and put her in her own room again she started crying, and wanting us to stay with her. This has been happening all week. We already had a good bedtime routine, winding down an hour before bed etc... when she starts crying we try to reassure her, we do stay for a while and then try to limit that time. We don't take her out of her room, but try to deal with it there. But she's not having any of it! any ideas as to what to do? Cheers
It shouldn't take too long to get past this slight blip, if you are consistent.
I would do a version of gradual withdrawal. For a couple of nights stay right next to the bed until she is fast asleep. The next couple of nights stay right next to the bed but facing the door until she is fast asleep. The next night a meter or so away from the bed, stay there until asleep - and so on until you stay in the doorway until asleep and finally agree to stay upstairs until asleep.
