DD is just about to turn 3, and all of a sudden she can't fall asleep at night. Last night she didn't fall asleep until after 11. I plan to try some guided relaxation with her tonight, but wondering if there are also some homeopathics I could use to help her relax. She naps at daycare, though she's starting to drop naps on the weekend.
I think it may be anxiety about sleeping alone - she starts the night out in her bed, and then joins us later in the night. We've always stayed with her until she fell asleep, and lately my husband has been doing the "I'll come back and check on you in a few minutes" thing, and then doesn't go back (it's hard to go in and out of the room w/o waking her up). She's become fixated on this, though, and every night says, "don't leave while I'm falling asleep". We talk it through with her, and try to stay until she's asleep, but it's taking SO LONG. Last night I did start going in and out for just a minute or two, to reassure her that if I say I will come back, then I will.
I really want to help her, but starting to wear on us! We get no couple time, and some nights I just give in and bring her to bed with me (I'm 13 weeks pregnant, so of course exhausted by the end of the day!).
Thanks for any advice.
