We have created some bad habits with TRex, I know that. We had so much trouble getting her eating and sleeping when we brought her home that sometimes we took the easy way. One we have always struggled with is her sleep. She has always fought going to sleep and/or taking a nap. She wakes often and has trouble going back to sleep. Don't know if she really can't or it is just a habit... probably the latter. So one of us ends up sleeping with her when she wakes during the night. She goes thru cycles where she will want me and then months where she will want her Dad. It has just been easier to lay down with her than keep going up to calm her down and not get any sleep of our own. However, neither of us sleep well with her (tossing and turning) so we are trying to break the habit. With her it seem to work better to just go cold turkey. We have talked with her about growing up and that we aren't mad and love her but she needs to learn to sleep by herself. So we are not going up. She has taken to sleeping on the couch downstairs. We don't care where she sleeps so long as she sleeps and we get our share. She ends up going to sleep about 8:30 or 9:00 but has been waking around 3 or 4. She can't go back to sleep and plays quitely until we get up. So she is tired and as usual our timing for all this is impecable... she starts school tomorrow. She takes 2 Kapvay (XR clonidine) and 3mg Melatonin to help her wind down but still wakes. Any suggestions on how to break this habit yet ease the transition for her? Thanks.
