Just put her down...

I just put my 10 month old down in her crib. Presently, she is screaming her head off. I need her to sleep in her own bed, and nothing has worked. She won't be rocked to sleep, walked to sleep, patted to sleep... I've tried so hard to be a "nice mommy" about it. But she won't sleep unless she's in my bed and that is not working for us. So I'm at my last resort and trying to let her put herself to sleep, but she just keeps crying and crying.... What do I do? She's making ME cry.

  • My dd was doing the same thing. I just let her cry it out. She won't be traumatized!!!! If anything she'll be more independent.

  • Go pick up a copy of "The No Cry Sleep Solution" in the morning.

    But know that she's NORMAL. It's actually not "normal" to have an infant or young toddler sleeping isolated from mom. We're still programmed to be Cave People, and Cave Baby stayed with Cave Mom.

  • We've been trying that. She just wakes up after being in her bed for a few minutes.

  • My son was the same way. I'm not much for CIO. I'd let him fall asleep in my bed and then move him to his, then he'd wake up and we'd start over. Yes, it is exhausting but eventually he started sleeping for longer periods of time.

  • Mine is doing the same thing. I'm all for the CIO method but I also LOVE the No cry sleep solution. I have the book and LOVE it so far. The CIO method just isnt something that will work for us right now so I'm trying it all and it's worked the best so far

  • Did you ever think maybe her matteress is uncomfortable. Maybe she is much more comfortable on yours. My son hated his crib bc the mattress was horrible (my FIL bought it).
