Alicia is driving me nuts! She won't stay in her room at night anymore, yet freaks if we put up the gate...full on 45 minute tantrum. If we leave the gate down, she goes into our room or falls asleep at the top of the stairs, watching us do the evening routine I suppose. I know she's tired, but she doesn't want to miss out on what's going on I guess. If she does go to sleep in her own bed, she wakes about 3, screaming, and ends up in bed with us. She much prefers company while sleeping, but I don't sleep well while she's there. Any ideas? Do you let your LO sleep in bed with you? We are considering putting DJ in her room, when he goes into a bed in a month or so...we wonder if she'll sleep better if he's there. The daycare says she'll only sleep if there's another child in the room with her, otherwise she won't settle down. Ug...what happened to my 12 hour girl?
Well, I think we may have hit on the solution. She asked the other day to sleep with DJ. While I wasn't about to put her in the crib, there is a twin bed in his room. She slept through the night (they both did!) and has slept in there 3 night since...and is now napping in there as well. Apparently my kid really does just want company when she's sleeping. It isn't bothering DJ either...so I guess they can just share a room for now. Funny girl
