Maybe it's just something she's going throught then and will outgrow it. All we can do is be there and be patient-lol. These kiddos - they are tricky demanding little people! ;o) I still suggest the picture idea-my daughter loved having a picture of us to carry with her and slip under her pillow.

She has playgroup once a week and Sunday school. And most everyday when the weather is fine we walk up town to the playground. my parents taking us shopping and on other outings. and they spend lots of time with her. At nite I read to her. I play a CD for her when she's falling asleep and always have a light on. yet she still wakes up and wants mommy. there is no dad, just mommy.

Maybe she is truly lonely then, does she get to be active in playdates with other kids her age? At bed time-maybe try a little radio with soft music playing and a night light-I know my oldest went thru this-I gave her a picture of us to slip under her pillow.
