My son has just hit 20months and now won't fall asleep in his bed without my husband or I there holding his hand. Up until now he has always been fine.
He has a regular nightime routine of.. Dinner, bath, bottle, brush teeth, book, prayers then bed.
But now when we go to leave the room he hops out of bed and cries... which turns into screaming and banging things on the door. We've tryed letting him cry it out for quite awhile, but eventually give in and sit with him until he falls asleep for fear of him trying to harm himself or destroy his room.
Any suggestions as to what may really be going on or ways to help?
