My 19 month old is the same way. We figure when he is ready he will sleep on his own.

I have 1 year old twins. My son likes his space.and sleeps in his own bed. My daughter is a different story. She wants to sleep on me. I'm not going to worry about ,yet.
Sorry, no good advice here...Good luck

It's not unusual. We co-slept for more than a year with both of ours.

Children are supposed to sleep cuddling mom. There aren't many animals that don't. Humans are one of the animals that are supposed to. It's normal.

Personally, we decided to train our babies to sleep better by themselves from about 2-3 months onward for the wellbeing of the whole family. The longer you wait to teach them, the harder it can be (because of established habits). We used compassionate cio method and it was effective with every one of our children we used it with. We didn't use it with our 2nd baby (we coslept for the first year) and she still doesn't sleep well in her own bed (she is 5!).

Quoting gypsymommy03:

This is normal. She is reaching lots of milestones physically, mentally and emotionally. It's very unsettling, and she needs the extra security. Please don't resort to CIO. It is in no way compassionate.

I have bed-shared and co-slept with all of mine, and all my children sleep just fine.

It's normal for kids to want to be near their parents, and even when they are sleeping fine, there could be something that unsettles them, and they just need their parent for a bit.

Meet that need and encourage sleeping in her own space again as she shows signs of being ready for it.

Normal, perhaps baby's molars are coming in and they need extra snuggles

I sat with my kids in their beds until they fell asleep.
My oldest didn't start going to sleep by herself until she was three, but my middle kid has been doing it since he was maybe eight months old.
