My DD who has slept in her own bed for the past two months has decided that she can't sleep alone anymore and is asking for me- I read her two bedtime stories she is begging for me to sleep with her. She doesn't like her music box anymore as the music scarea her.
I don't know what to do tonight.. I have a student coming in at 8.30 am
Our daughter has been asking us to sit in the chair in her room while she falls asleep lately, not sure why. Luckily she's been asking daddy to do it most nights, which is good since he'll most likely have to help with her more once baby arrives.
My DD has the worse sleep issues! She hates to be alone in her room even though we have multiple nightlights and small lamps on in there and her door (and ours) are open all night long with a very short hallway connecting them. She will go through stretches where she will wake in the middle of the night for no reason and then refuse to go back to sleep and then sometimes she will go to bed without fuss at all. No rhyme or reason, but it's getting much harder for me to get up in the middle of the night now with how uncomfortable I'm feeling.
She has always had sleep issues and hates to be alone, a total social butterfly. This is one of the main reasons why we decided the girls would share a room when baby gets old enough, so that DD would have someone else in there and not feel so lonely.

I feel like my DS can sense there are changes coming and his sleep patterns have been disrupted lately. Friday night he was in our room every 15/20 minutes for 4 hours from midnight on. I felt like screaming as DH had to go to a mandatory meeting at work the next morning.

I feel your pain! Our 3 yr old DS wants to come into our bed everynight. We have put our foot down as he is just to big and we cant get any sleep. Now we find him on the floor next to our bed or he just stands there whinning. When we tell him he has to go back to his bed he says " i cant" .. I dont know how we will manage w/ the baby b/c her crib is in our room and i dont need him waking her up unnecessarily.
My DH hardly got any sleep last night as well. She calls for us in the middle of the night.. asking for water.. then to fix her blanket.. then she is scared and is seeing a white ghost with black eyes ( this she gets from seeing the Halloween decor at WalMart and other stores-- I dont know why they put them at the front- keep them away from toddlers!!)
I am now thinking she will not be handing out candy as some costumes are very scary and I dont need her to have more sleepless nights.
It started to happen when the houses in our neighbourhoods and stores put out their decor. My poor husband does wake up and tend to her throughout the night.. I try to as well.
We know we will have more work with DD then the baby.
She has a small night light in her room and we have been leaving another on in the hallway this past week.
Yes she does make excuses.. She's hungry, or needs to be tucked in, or wants to hold a bookie so you're right with that.
