    yep - just a phase

    It lasted maybe a couple of months - and then one day she was just over it and went back to normal.

    Am so relieved at the confirmation that it is a phase. Will just have to stay calm and ride it out with her lol. I need my sleep!

    Okay so last night was a disaster! DH put her to bed as usual and I had gone to bed earlier due to unrelenting hayfever. She got herself soooo worked up that she was struggling to breathe. I intervened and lied down on the floor beside her cot but that was clearly not good enough as she was almost vomitting from being so worked up. I did put her in my bed after sitting with her for over half an hour due to how I was feeling. Should I convert her cot? Should I drag a single bed mattress in as well? Can't believe how she behaved last night. Breaks my heart to see her like that :-(

    Maybe put a mattress in her room and let her sleep in it with you and slowly transition her back into the cot? At least then she will still have positive associations with her room and not yours. She is used to sleeping in your bed so probably has to break the habit.

    yeah I would try a mattress in her room, where you sleep there with her.

    It keeps her in her room rather than developing that association with your bed, and then feeling bad when she has to go back to her room.

    Looks like converting the cot and bringing in a mattress for me is the way to go. I hope she adjusts quickly as this isnt ideal lol.

    DS is almost 2, when we moved house a couple of months ago we got him a double bed and he is sleeping so much better. He can roll and around and get comfortable and if he is having a rough night one of us can lay with him until he goes back to sleep. I don't mind him in our bed, but it's really not a good habit because like you, I have broken sleep and then just feel shattered.

    Well I converted her cot yesterday afternoon! She was sooooo excited & played in it (pretending to be asleep). Wasn't keen to stay in it when bed time came around though so I set up a mattress for me and pretended to sleep while she ran in & out of the room. Eventually she came in & lied down beside me & went to sleep. She was literally sleeping up against her bed but didnt want to be in it lol. I stayed there with her all night. I am thinking I may try waiting until her breathing gets heavy so I know she is fast asleep & then leave her there on her own. As I type this she is still asleep on the mattress in her room but I have come out so that when she wakes I am not there. Just got to figure out how her little mind is working atm.

    Well further progress was made with DD overnight! Despite the fact that she totally skipped her day sleep, she ended up sleeping on the mattress in front of her toddler bed all night. I came out of her room at 10pm and even went in to reposition her at one stage and she didnt wake! I am considering this another win! Now all I need is for her to get in her bed instead of sleeping beside it ....
