Sleeping with Toddler Rss

Hi Maree,

I have a 2 1/2 yr old girl that has taken to me lying down with her for her afternoon sleep. I only have to lay with her until she is asleep (usually 5 mins max). She doesn't make a fuss about going to bed when I tell her it is time to go for a sleep, but she will scream the house down for 20 mins or longer if I don't lay with her.

My question is: Is this just a passing phase with her and will she get out of it, or is there something else I should be trying?

She has never been a clingy child and I don't want her to lose her independence.

Thanks Heaps

Hi Danielle,

This is already turning into a sleep association and it could turn into a middle of the night problem as well if you’re not careful. I would be encouraging her to fall asleep by herself, even if it takes a few screams.

Regards
