  • If your home for naps, try putting her in there for naps. Try putting on a music, or tv, or record the sweeper onto a CD or something and play it while she is in there. The sense that she isnt alone helps alot!

  • Sense my son has been off the bottle, we have had the same problem. All I do is let him lay down with daddy until he falls asleep. Then I pick him up and put him in his own crib. At first he would wake up and cry when he found out he wasn't the the big bed. But after a few days he got used to it. I'm not sure this is the answer because there are alot of late nights. But maybe this will help.

  • meijer (if you have one where you live...otherwise try babies r us) has a wonderful noise machine and projector. it makes heartbeat, rain, and ocean noises as well as a couple different song and projects pictures on the wall or ceiling. try that. i warn you, though...if you start using a sleeping crutch, make sure you have a spare or you'll regret it when the first breaks!
