We've had a great bedtime routine for about 18mos now. Recently she has started going hysterical when we try to leave her room at night after we've read her books and layed down w/ her. She says she is scared. We have asked and asked. Sometimes it's dragons - so, we came up w/ a silly noise that we told her scares them away. Then, she said she is scared of her ceiling light, that she insists stays on. We turn the light off when we go to bed but leave the lamp on her nightstand on. If she wakes up at night, she notices the light is off and comes to our room, insisting that I go sleep w/ her in her room. Today I did start a reward system and it's worked so far. Has anyone else gone through this? Also, can you rec. a light that is safe to stay on all night that is not a small night light?
