As you say so well here, you are a loving and close little family and your baby felt very secure in this environment. She also sleeps in the same bedroom with you. Then you went out one night and she woke up to find that you were not there. Even though your parents were there she got a surprise and developed separation anxiety since then. Now her separation anxiety has become more of a habit with regular waking at night.This will stop after some time, it is impossible to tell you how long it will take. The only way to stop it earlier which you may not want to do is to let her cry when she wakes and to go through the controlled crying technique. I would not advise this with your daughter as it may increase her separation anxiety.
