My daughter is three and a half and has been fantastic at going to bed and sleeping through right from a very young age. This week she has started being quite a pickle going to bed, fussing around with getting comfortable, wiping her nose and dribbles, and then not wanting us to leave the room. She is usually so tired (as she doesn't nap during the daytime). For a couple of nights she has also woken during the night in the early hours sometimes to go to the toilet but sometimes for silly things and then again not wanting us to leave her again. She has a vivid imagination and I'm pretty sure that its just a phase (although hopefully not a too long one!!). She did say that there were monsters and they were taking her toys away, obvioulsy we reassured her that she is safe and mummy and daddy are just in the next room, but that doesn't seem to be working at the moment - can you help? I'm pregnant too and so exhausted - would welcome any advice or reasssurance that this is all normal and she'll just grow out of it.
