Separation anxiety at night
Since turning one my daughter suddenly dislikes going to bed. She was going to sleep without any help. Now the moment I lay her down in her bed she screams bloody murder and immediately calms down if I hold her again. Our bed time is 7:30-8 depending on the day. We have a routine down of a story and lullaby right before bed. Once she cries herself to sleep she will stay asleep for a few hours only to wake back up again crying. The separation anxiety only seems to happen at night. The moment she is picked up by my husband or I the crying stops. I have tried patting and shushing her. Just kind of at a loss on the best tactic.
