I co-slept with all of my children and my older two were able to wean themselves out of the bed. My youngest is now eight and doesn't even seem to be close to wanting me out of the room. I have at least got her to sleep in the bed across the room from mine. So she is in her own bed now but refuses to let me leave the room. If she wakes up and sees I have left she either comes to get me or is upset at me in the morning. When I ask her why she won't sleep without me she says "I hear noises". I have tried to explain to her that it is probably just animals outside, but it doesn't matter to her. I want her to sleep on her own now, but can't handle forcing her esp. when she says she is scared. Any advice?
