Calling All Experienced Mothers - or anyone with suggestions
So last week we thought Helen had the flu. Oddly though she was fine all day and only threw-up just as we were getting her in bed. Then I didn't feel good and didn't want to put up with throw-up too so I let her sleep in my bed a couple of nights. We attempted to get back on schedule and routine tonight. And she threw-up again tonight. I was trying to get her to go to bed on her own like we had been doing a few weeks ago, and as soon as I left the room her cry became very strange and sure enough I went in and she was gargling on throw-up. I really don't think she is sick - I think it is anxiety. I really would like to avoid cleaning up throw-up every night. Any suggestions on how to relieve her anxiety about sleeping in her own room and get her back on the schedule we were once on?
