We took my 3yr olds dummy or her "dehdah" away 2 weeks ago. Admittedly she's been pretty good in not looking for it, has asked for it only a handful of times and when I tell her it's gone she's like "okaaaay".
But now my issue is that she just will not sleep on her own, is so scared of the dark and of monsters,! Every night i have to stay with her till she falls asleep, even if she naps during the day. I also find that she's just up so so late now. She always went to bed later than other kids, around 9/9.30 (but she's a late riser most days except when she goes to DC) so now she's going to bed anywhere between 10-11pm! Far far to late.
I realise I've essentially taken her sleep cue and 'security blanket' away so she's feeling exposed and insecure now the poor love. I just don't know what to do!

I've just randomly decided to put DS to bed with no dummy. He's become attached to a bunny the past few days so thought I'd see what happens. I didn't say anything about it to him, just didn't clip it to his sleeping bag. So far he hasn't said anything...I'm scared!

Think he's asleep! Watching him on the monitor and he hasn't moved for a while but took him about 45 mins to fall asleep rather than 5 or 10 mins. He never complained or called me back in and asked for it. He sat up a couple times but then just lied back down. Such a good little guy. Regardless, I feel really bad and sad for him that he laid there for 45 mins not really understanding why it was missing 😢.
