Baby sleeps better when I’m gone?😔


Well this is depressing! My 8mo old has never been a good sleeper. She’s up many times every night and nurses both for food and comfort. I left her for the first time this weekend to go out of town so she was with my husband all weekend. I had enough milk stored up so the only difference in her routine was bottle vs breast. Shockingly she slept amazing while I was gone. Would put herself back down when she woke up and only needed to feed once. So now I’m sitting here wondering if it’s something going on with me specifically?? Does she know I will come running when she cries, or can she smell me(even though she’s all the way down the hall from me)? Does anyone have any similar experience with this?
