I’m new to this forum and just hoping for some advice please!
I separated with my partner in November 2020 and he has moved back to his parents. We have a one year old baby who stayed mostly with me for the first few months of the separation. However I was also between staying at home and at my mums with him.
My baby has has a lot of upheaval since Christmas, his Dad moving out, he started nursery (which he struggled with after lockdown) and he has just started staying overnight at his Dads for about 2nights a week.
He seems to be ok at his Dads and sleeps well. However, when he gets home he won’t sleep on his own and wants to be with me all night (which is unusual for him). I feel he’s getting some anxiety because he wants to be literally on my chest and holds me like a newborn would. He doesn’t want to sleep as it’s as if he can’t relax. This happens for about 4 hours in the night then he’ll finally just fall to sleep next to me.
I am finding it difficult because he doesn’t do this with my ex or my mum in the night – he in fact sleeps for around 11hours. So my ex usually tells me I’m doing something wrong with him.
Has this happened to anyone else and what tips can you give?!
