Hi there. My little girl used to be able to sleep pretty well before 2 yrs old, but I guess I've accidentally changed her sleeping habits. There was a about a week's time period when I would sit next to her bed and sing to her to make her fall asleep because she wasn't sleepy. She now wakes up a few times a night crying for mommy. The first time is usually about 2 hours after she goes to sleep. I usually let her just cry it out when she gets up the first time (I talk to her through the door). She doesn't usually cry for longer than 5 min.
She holds on to a soft old burp cloth when she is in bed. She still uses the Fisher Price's seahorse that glows and plays music too. I tried giving her a small teddy bear to hold also, but that doesn't help with soothing her.
If anyone that reads this has any advice please let me know, thank you.
