My 2 year old won’t go to sleep without us rocking her?

My two year old got into this phase where she has to have us rock her till she goes to sleep otherwise she’ll scream until she hyperventilates. What do I do?

Mommy I wish I could say that I had the answer but we went through this for 4 years. My little boy slept through for the first time just after his 4th birthday. A lot of research says you foster independent children by making them feel secure, loved and validated. There were many nights I felt I was going to lose it buy in hindsight they passed so fast. Today I have a confident 5 year old who still needs me. Hold them a little longer, hug them a little closer.
