I will take any advice or suggestions you ladies throw out there. My DD has inevitably encountered separation anxiety...but it is bad, real bad! If I sit her down on the floor and even almost turn my back...she screams. She screams when I put her in the car and I shut the door and she can no longer see me. When she wakes up in the middle of the night...she screams until I go in. If she is crying and my husband picks her up..she screams until I hold her. Basically, if I am not in her sight, by her side, or holding her, she screams!
I have let her sleep in my room the last two nights (not in my bed), and she still wakes up screaming but once I say "Mommy is here" and rub her arm or leg, she falls back asleep. It's endearing that she wants her mommy...but mommy is exhausted! How normal is this and when does it end?
