In the beginning my son slept in his room with the door closed. In the last couple of months he’s become scared of the dark so we keep his door open with the hallway light on.
The problem now is that bub gets incredibly upset if my partner and I close our bedroom door. This is fine if bub doesn’t wake up through the night because we just wait till he falls asleep and close the door. Most of the time he does wake up and gets incredibly upset if the door is closed so we open it and then can’t sleep because the hallway light keeps us awake.
This is the only anxious behaviour he displays so I don’t know if this is anxiety or something else. He’s very secure in everything else, it’s just this one thing.
He is currently being assessed for autism/adhd if that could be related.
We’ll be moving into a new house soon where he won’t be able to see our door so the problem may fix itself but if not does anyone have any tips and tricks?
