My daughter will be a year next week. She is definately a mama's girl and that's OK with me as I love her dearly. But some of the clingyness is new to me. Her sister never was that way. She slept on her own all night, at 8 weeks old.
My baby has to be rocked to sleep still or held. Is this normal at all? When we place her in the bed after our nightly routine, she tries to climb out. I tried to place her in the bed with us to co sleep until she can fall asleep on her own, and she won't lie down, even if she's dead tired. The car thing worked when she was smaller. But now, it has no effect. She'll whine and jump up and down until she's held most nights and I can't stand to hear that cry..
I don't believe in letting babies "cry it out" as I think they cry for a reason. But I am at a loss for what to try next to get her to fall asleep on her own. Or is that unrealistic?
