I had DD in her bassinet from birth and is now 4 months. About a month ago DH had to go away for work and we went with him and our port-a-cot broke so she ended up sleeping in our bed. The one week away turned into 4 weeks away, and now DD wont sleep without me next to her. I am starting to get terrible back pain and headaches, I'm assuming from my sleeping position and from sleeping with one eye open making sure DH doesn't roll on top of little miss.
I know I won't be able to let her CIO to put her back into her cot, but was just wondering if theres a way for a smooth transition. The max I can leave her crying is 5 minutes and by then I'm basically bawling my eyes out coz I just feel like the worst mother in the world. I need help! What can I do?
She also won't sleep in the day anymore unless I lay with her and as soon as she realises I've gone she's awake screaming.
