Separation anxiety


For the past week, Little man has been waking up in the middle of the night and refusing to self settle. But more than that - refuses to be settled by Daddy... And screams out for Mummy. 

The minute i step into the room, he is happy to place his sleepy head on his pillow and is happy to go back to bed as long as i stay in the room. Not what mummy wants for sure, not if i have to go to work.

2 sleep deprived parents having wee hour discussions on what is going on..

Is he scared of something? 
Should we put the night light on? 
Is it separation anxiety given that he only wants mummy? 
Should we try control crying again?

Wondering what is going on..??
