    Try putting him in the cot on his tummy once he is asleep, if you feel comfortable doing so. It's a much more natural way for them to sleep & he's less likely to startle awake as you put him down.

    Have you tried patting to sleep?

    Giving a routine like closing the blinds, reading a story and then placing her in her bed and gently shhhhhing and patting?

    Don't stress, every baby is different. My ds1 is 3.5 and still won't sleep without me, but ds2 21mths has slept thru since 3months and it was only the rough patches when we had to pat.

    Good luck x

    Definitely not just you! It does pass, now that my 2 year old is so independent and doesn't need her mummy as much, I'm making sure I enjoy these early days snuggles with baby number two because they just don't last *sob*.
