I have an almost 3-year-old daughter who refuses to sleep on her own without mommy’s bed and mommy in it. Nine months ago we were hit by a driver chasing a dog in his vehicle which spooked her. In the first month after the incident, she would wake up screaming scared but she slowly realized she was okay and the night terrors faded.
However, since this awful day she has refused to sleep anywhere but my bed and only with mommy. I have tried multiple things people recommended but nothing is working. She’s on a bed time routine and schedule and she follows it perfectly as long as she’s in my bed.
She is making it impossible for me to sleep because every time I move over a little she wakes up and moves right up next to me I have tried moving her to her own bed but as soon as she gets in her bed she instantly wakes up screaming and comes back to my bed. I have tried melatonine I have tried laying in her bed with her and I have tried rewards for just simply laying in her bed. Nothing seems to be working.
She sleeps so spread out her father hasn’t been able to squeeze into bed and has to resort to sleeping on the couch and way it's messing with my sleep schedule is driving me insane messing.
