My 14 month old won't sleep without me, he can go to sleep by himself and in his cot but needs me in the room, how can I encourage this to stop so he sleeps through without needing me every time he wakes. Most of the time I give in and then he ends up sleeping with me. He's very clingy all the time too and wants picking up all the time and screams when I don't, even when he can see me. Just need some help cos I don't have a minute to breathe ha.

Is there a reason you can't do in-cot settling?

I would offer all of the in-cot settling baby needs, but not being her out of the cot. Then gradually over time reduce her dependant on your presence and replace with independant comfort (dummy, toy, blanket)
