Any suggestions to stop my almost 2 yr old being so clingy? I love her dearly but she's waking up 5-8 times night crying for me hysterically

Clingy. Try to have a quiet hour before putting you child to bed. Read books that dont have monstors in them . Try a warm bath. Once in bed go to her, make sure she, s ok, dont pick her up. Just reassure her. It will take several nights and she should begin sleeping through the night.
