So my 4.5 year has been co-sleeping with my and my husband since she was 18 months. I ordered her a bed in February and it was finally delivered two days ago. She loves her room but is scared to sleep alone. I think she legit has some anxiety in general (too scared to go to sunday school at church, but okay to go to preschool with all of her friends).
I can get her to sleep in her room by laying with her until she falls asleep. Then she wakes approximately 4 hours later and searches the house for me and I haven't been able to escape her room thereafter. My 6 yo is an amazing champion sleeper.
I'm headed into sleep deprivation psychosis soon which is how I got into this mess to begin with. Any tips? Please!
