This is kinda sweet. I think. Try replacing him with a teddy bear until you're able to fall asleep without it. And please, don't turn into one of those moms who refuses to believe anyone will love him as much as you do, so you sabotage his relationships.

Yeah, but that man you married isn't just some random person, it's the man you choose to spend the rest of your life with, the man who will always be there for you and vice versa. That man is also half the reason why you'd have a child in the first place. Now, of course there are lower than scum men that exist and what I said doesn't apply to them, but saying that the love for the man you married isn't the same as the love you have for your child? Why'd you marry them in the first place then?

One is a grown adult, who is hopefully there to support her and carries his share of their responsibilities, but ultimately someone who can take care of himself and communicate his needs and wishes. Because a husband - ideally - is an equal.

Your child is a human person you grew inside your own body for nine months - it's completely dependent on you for everything. It could not feed itself, keep itself warm or clean or understand its surroundings without a parent there to care for it. So after now more than a year of being so close with your baby it's almost like just an addition of your own body, it does make a mother anxious to not have it right next to her to check if it's sleeping, if it's calm, if it's breathing, etc.

The presence of another human, no matter how close, is not the same, because it's not about "not being able to fall asleep on your own". It's your brain not shutting up about how the baby being just one room further is the worst thing in the world.

So no, you'll never love your spouse in the same manner as your baby, and that's a good thing in many, many aspects.

That being said, OP I hope you get used to it quickly. :)
It's already a blessing to have a baby that sleeps fine on its own, I'm sure you'll adjust.

This is totally normal, especially if you've grown accustom to sleeping next to someone close like spouse or kids

It'll take some time but be proud that you helped your little one leave the nest

Unless she is a heavy sleeper, heavy drinker, or drug addict, most moms are hyper aware of their child in bed with them, and they take precautions so as to not roll over on them. I was constantly aware of where my son was and is and have never rolled over onto him.

Be strong. I’m sure you know it’s best for both of you that he learns to sleep alone, or it wouldn’t be an FML. My cousins’s two year old still “needs” to go to sleep with his mother, and it’s all kinds of trouble.
