Thanks for the advice. Hope this is not too OT but I read up a bit on SA and it indeed suggested to stay in the room untill LO is asleep, like you say.
But my LO is Textbook/Spirited and the Spirited mostly translates to naps and bedtimes where she is so alert that even the slightest detail, sound etc will attract her attention.
I have had to do TONS of sleeptraining when she was still tiny to teach her that the world doesnīt go anywhere while she naps. She has been an excellent napper for months now and our winddown is very short and minimalistic, a.i. that I just donīt speak to her, donīt sing, donīt caress, donīt pat since this just keeps her too awake. I just put her in sleeping bag, sit for a few minutes in her darkened room, put her in her cot and then leave immediately since she would keep checking if Iīm still there if I stay in there.
Now with this SA, Iīm a bit umpf as to how to deal with it, she cried a lot yesterday and I really dislike that. WI/WO worked but yesterday, it took longer than usual. In addition to being scared, she also got angry because I kept leaving, I think. Do you know what they recommend for Spirited sleepers in this regard?
