  • Don't talk or turn on the light. Just ease in and pat her on the back after laying her back down. Then walk out of the room. If you talk or turn on the light, she will think it's playtime. Show her this is not, it's only sleep time.

  • Let her play by herself, don't give her much attention... if she needs to eat or be changed, do those things, but nothing else.
