I'm not sure what's going on with her, but whatever it is - I hope it passes soon. She was climbing out of her crib so we transitioned her to the toddler bed. We're going on 2 weeks and it's gotten progressively worse. We tried locking her in the room and she just wailed and wailed and kicked the door. It was heartbreaking. She gets out on average 10x a night and tries to come into bed with us. When she gets out one of us escorts her back to her room and then we leave. She then starts to cry and we come back to lay down with her on the floor. Rinse / repeat multiple times a night.
Honestly - if I didn't think it would become a habit - I would let her come in bed, just to get some sleep - but know it would become more permanent. Since she's transitioned she will not fall asleep without me / DH in the room with her. If we leave before she is asleep she starts sobbing. We're trying the whole super nanny move away from the bed a little each night - right now my DH's is 1/2 in her room 1/2 out (funny sight to see), but someone still needs to be there until she falls asleep.
I'm starting to question if she's ready for a toddler bed - should we just go back to the crib and get her a tent since she'll inevitably climb out?? I'm exhausted, DH is exhausted, and Ella is BEYOND exhausted. Even her teachers at school said something to me about her being very sleepy.
On top of this - she's gotten very jealous / possessive of Zachary and just the overall terrible 2's are in full effect. Sorry this has gotten so long, but thanks for letting me vent.
