Ever since our week long vacation, where my son was with me 100% of the time, he has had a lot of separation anxiety. During the day it's manageable. His teachers are good with distracting him after we say our goodbyes but at night it's becoming a problem. He goes to bed fine about 8:30 at night but wakes up around 1:00 a.m. screaming. We change him and give him a bottle and I rock him back to sleep but as soon as I put him in his crib he's screaming again. Pick him up and he's perfectly fine. It's like a light switch. As soon as I put him down again the screaming continues until I pick him back up. I'm not sure how to handle this. I've never co-slept with him before because I'm worried about rolling on him but lately I've givin into it just so I can get some sleep to make it through work the next day. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them.
