I've tried every loving solution in the book. Each thing seems to make her resistance to sleep worse. She used to go to bed with no complaints and sleep through the night. Now it's like she has trained herself to hate it... We used to do fine letting her fuss for a few minutes if she woke in the night and she'd put herself right back to sleep. Well, because she started mentioning being "worried" we've been more reluctant to just leave her there, thinking it's new fears and anxieties... everything we do to try to make her sleep environment more comfortable seems to make desperate for something more; every moment we spend reassuring her after lights out seems to make her more starved for our attention, more afraid of us leaving... I feel like we've somehow created a monster. A friend has suggested we do the controlled crying thing some people do with infants -- which I have NOT had to do with my babies. Would you try it?Answer Question
