DS has been waking up really early frantically searching for daddy and I'm not sure how to help him. I'm a SAHM and DS and I used to sleep in until 9 am and didn't move a muscle as daddy walked out the door for work. Suddenly something has changed!
Every time DS hears that shower running, he springs from a deep sleep and get down from bed to go watch daddy take a shower. This is at like 6 am, so DS has 7 hours of sleep since we stay up late. We've tried running fans, shutting more doors, anything to muffle the noise and help DS sleep in longer. No luck.
There have even been a few night where DS will sit up in bed (like a 2 am) calling for his dad. We cosleep and each time my husband mumbles "Honey I'm right here - on the other side of mommy."
So I guess I have two concerns.
1. How do I help DS keep sleeping longer and not.feel so frantic that his dad is going to work?
2. Where is this separation anxiety coming from? We have ton of fun all day, but suddenly daddy is the one he wants?!
