To all of my Mommy friends out there...do you have any advice? Maggie has been sleeping pretty well for the past few months. She always goes down awake for naps and bedtime and usually has no problem falling asleep on her own. Since last week however getting her to sleep has become a HUGE problem! She hates being put in her bed and screams! After checking all the usual signs I have determined she is 1. not wet 2. just been fed 3. no teeth pain (she was smiling and happy before nap time). I suspect it has to do with separation anxiety and I don't mind letting her cry a little bit but it is so hard to listen to her for more than 10 minutes! Did this happen to your kids and how did you deal with it? I know this is just a baby stage and won't last forever but I do not want to develop any bad habits while waiting for it to pass. Thanks!!!
