My fiancee now has to rock her to sleep and puts her to bed she wakes up at 12 and than 3 when shes up at 3 its for like an hour and all shell do is whine and cry. I dont know what to do.

Actually co-sleeping is good to a point and with the right precautions (like a co-sleeping bed attachment). Once a baby reaches a certain age (like right now, for her) it is best they sleep in their own bed, preferably in their own room....
She is creating a new habit, not a good one either. You need to go to a real schedule, in her own bed, in her own room. Get a baby monitor. If you have the $$ get one with a screen, so you can see her. If you continue this habit will get worse and harder to break.
Yes she will cry at first. But let her cry for 30 min or so, then if she is still screaming quietly sooth her w/out talking, turning lights on, or disturbing her. Then put her back down. You will probably be doing that repetitively for a while. But it will be worth it in the end. Just be sure to get extra rest for yourself, you may be up off and on till you break this habit of hers.
Babygirl, it takes time but it will pass. Just be consistant from here on out.
My sister is learning this the hard way now too...
