(Don't bother throwing flames at me for having a tv in her room. I could really care less). So for us, the issue wasn't really wanting mommy like I initially felt. It was waking up in a darkish room. So, if you don't want to try a tv maybe a pretty bright light and noise machine would help.
We've tried nightlights, twilight turtle, and music. We always do white noise. It generally all works fine for getting him to sleep, some nights are fine, some are not. But he won't stay asleep with any of it. He wakes in the middle of the night just as upset.
