If you'll check back in the archives of this forum, you'll find that we more often get asked about the child who is reluctant to stop sharing the parents bed. DO you perhaps have issues about finding comfort from the presence of your child, or anxiety about what might be happening to her if not adjacent to you ? Maybe some counselling would help. Alsop, ask on the Parenting support forum, for more ideas from other parents
