This is a two part inquirey
I have an 18 1/2 month old, she is a very good and easy going baby. Her normal schedule is bedtime 8pm and usually wakes up anywhere from 7-7:30am. This is so great for my husband and I, because this gives us a chance to get up and ready for work. She is just getting over a major cold which has screwed up her sleeping habit anyways; but is finally back to her normal self except now she is waking up around 4:30-5am. Then she gets up this early then she doesn't let me put her down or go out of her sight. Any suggestion on how to get her back on her normal sleep??
Now my daughter is a pretty independent little girl, but she has this thing about you going in a room and shutting the door. You can go outside and leave her inside but go in a room in the house and she can't come watch out a fit is about to be thrown. This especially happens when we try to use the bathroom. The only time I really shut the door so she can't come in is when I'm in the shower. She will sit out side the door and scream until I come out. I will clarify she is not left completely alone, my husband or someone else is always on the same side of the door as her, and it's not just me that she does this too. I can be on the same side of the door and my husband can be in the other room. It breaks my heart to hear her scream and get so upset. Please help us through this stage.
