My DD is going to be 3 at the end of April. She has almost always slept either with or in the same room as DH and I. She does still use a pacifier at sleep times only. I feel like I've totally screwed her up.
Anyway...bedtime routine is bath, quality time, books, sing a few bedtime songs, and then I lie next to her until she falls asleep. I have tried leaving and she gets very upset. While we don't mind her in our bed too much, she does have her own room with a full size bed. She was sleeping in it but wakes up most nights and if I'm not next to her, she either cries until I come into the room or gets out of the bed and comes to find me. I would like for her to not freak out just because I'm not next to her everytime she wakes up a little. Any suggestions?
