well, i don't mean to sound bitchy but most likely you could have avoided the problem by never letting her sleep with you! That was one habit I was determined my child would never pick up. He has slept in his own crib since night one, I was insistent on it even when his father wanted him to sleep with us! And luckily he has been a great sleeper, has slept a straight 10-13 hours every single night since 4 months old and only woke once a night before then for a quick diaper change and small bottle and then went right back to sleep!! I really don't feel sorry for mothers who allow their babies to sleep with them when they are infants and than complain about it when they are toddlers, it's your own fault.
