My 4 yo has, for the past few months, decided that she needs someone to lie down with her for her to fall asleep. Mostly this is an ok but atricky juggling act for me to do - if she goes to sleep within a few minutes it's fine, it's the nights that she ****farts around that are hard with other children/jobs/dinner and, well, socialization with my husband that i see for three hours each night, that suffers.
Until we camped for three weeks (her and i shared a bed) four months ago she was awesome at going to bed - into to bed sometimes mucked around, read books, but always fell asleep within about 20 mins on her own.
Who else went thru a similar phase and how did it pan out? I just keep hoping she will get over it soon and be back to the usual goodnight story/massage then left to fall asleep alone.
