My 22 month old doesnt sleep through the night.. help.

I have a 22 month old who we recently got her into sleeping in her own bed in her own room. Before she used to co-sleep, then we had her bed in our room and now we have her and a 4 month old baby in their own room. Problem is 22 month old wakes up every hour and comes to our room and crawls into her our bed. How can I get her to sleep throughout the night? and How can I get her to sleep in her own bed?

  • This is probably going to be a tough road for you since she co-slept for so long. I moved DS to his crib at 6 months, so I haven't had to do this, but its what supernanny does. You'll have to put her in her bed after your nightime routines (bath, brush teeth, books, potty, etc.) and then you can sit in the room with her (NO EYE CONTACT though) so she can see you & feels comforted that you're there. Once she falls asleep, then you leave. Every night, get further & further away until you're out the door. She'll get used to it. I agree with "momtokenzie". If/when she gets out of bed, just pick her up & put her back in. The first time you can say, "its bedtime" or "goodnight" after that, no eye contact, no talking. Just put her in. She'll probably give you good fits for a while, but if you stay consistent, she'll get it & you'll be free to sleep alone!

  • i'm dealing with the same thing.......i've heard to let them cry it out...or every time they get up to not say anything and put them back in their bed and leave the room, and repeat as much as necessary. who knows though....
