# When she gets sleepy, put her in her bed.
# Position yourself so that you can gently pat her and make sure she remains lying down by gently applying pressure on her body if needed.
# When she begins to cry, don't pick her up -- this will be extremely hard to do, but if you pick her up, she will learn to cry next time until you do again!
# Continue to pat her, sing to her, tell her you love her --whatever it takes --even though she is crying. You will not be abandoning her, only teaching her to let go and fall asleep.
# Ideally, you and her mother can do this together for mutual support.
# When one of you can't take it anymore, that one should leave the room for a while.
# Keep singing, patting, and comforting her until she falls asleep.
