As of late she always asks to go to sleep in our room. I generally don't allow this because her monitor is in her room, her music (i use this for white noise) is in her room. However I still lay with her and attempt to snuggle her as much as she'll let me to help her settle into bed. Sometimes she's now in my bed by 11pm and during the night she spends a great deal of tossing and turning. One second wanting to be close right up against me and bumping her head roughly against mine in an attempt to get comfortable. The next second she's in her bed banging her feet on the mattress and tossing and turning. Last night she was up for 2 1/2 hours before I got her settled down enough to sleep. When questioned why she's not a sleep she'll say "i can't get comfortable" or "I'm having trouble sleeping". The nights she has slept in her room until 5am she'll sometimes come running and crying into my room, but she can't verbalized why she's crying. There are also some behaviours going on during the day such as being defiant, throwing temper tantrums, and than running into my arm to be snuggled. I'm not sure if these are normal developmental behaviours for her age backet of if these behaviours are specific to her. I was hoping to get feedback from other mom's with similar beliefs as me. I was also hoping for some suggestions on how I could possibly be more supportive for dd and if there is any literature you may have that may be helpful for me to read. thanks for your help.
