  • you have to put her there and just tough it out. At 8mos she will cry a couple of nites and be fine, but you have to stick to it. Every few mins say from other room, "moms here go nite nite see you in the morning" do not pop head in, she knows you are there by your voice and it can turn into peek a boo lol. Please transition her now tho, it gets harder and harder as she gets older. I promise you will not permanently damage her tho she may cry like she is dying. good luck and it may take a few days or a week but she will get it.

  • sing her a song, rub her back , she'll fall asleep.. you'll go to bed, she will wake up screaming bloddy murder, go back make her little world a better place (in her bed), leave her there, rince and repeat! she will survive and if you tough it out so will you!
