  • Normal. Natural. Won't last. NO mom has passed those ages without a shadow that even goes to the bathroom with them or at least stands at the door and pokes their fingers under and asks what you are doing and when are you going to be done.

  • I do not understand why you put the statement in that she will not sleep with daddy anymore. Why was she sleeping with daddy? I do not know why this is happening. But that statement makes me wonder if you do not have some suspcions and do not want to be the person to say it outloud. Think about this.

  • You are her protector. Be there for her. Find out what is going on and help her. She is your primary concern. Right now she needs you please be there.

  • Having a new baby, she feels her territory is invaded and at risk. Give her the attention she is craving.
    I am sorry, I did not want that to pass and not be addressed. It is a hard question, but it had to be asked.
    I did not mean to upset you, I just wanted to voice a possibility with the information you had given us.
