My daughter is 13 months old and we have just recently started putting her to bed awake and letting her put herself to sleep. We started this just a few days ago and even though she is crying less and less each time, she is getting herself so worked up that she is having a BM. I don't know what to do because by the time she gets herself to go to sleep we have to go in her room and change her diaper because she has pooped! And of course she wakes up. A friend of ours has a son, who is now 3, that everytime he cried and got himself worked up, he would throw up. It seems like she is doing the same thing but is pooping instead of throwing up. Does anybody have any advice, or has this happened to anyone else??? Please please help! So desperate for help!Answer Question
I assume you have tried reading to her, or sitting in the room for a short time. When children are upset or sick they react systemically, meaning their body reacts also. Does she have a tv in her room? If so, is there a DVD you can put in to make her more relaxed and want to stay in the room? I'm sorry, I know it's heartbreaking as a parent when your child is crying so hard like that. I know all will work out....it just takes time. Hang in there.
