My daughter will be 22 months and she has slept with us since she was 3 months old..well, she's big now and likes to kick. I'm also thinking that this is why she is crying more at night. I think she is getting woken up by us touching her and she's not really sleeping that good anymore. did anyone else experience this with co-sleeping?? how did you transition her? just put her to bed and let her be?? is there a way to do it gradually so she doesn't go back to the beginning with sleep traininG?? any ideas will help. thanks in advance :)Answer Question

I co-slept with my 3. She probably isn't waking because of you since she has always slept with you. She is used to touching people. If she is crying in bed with you, it may be much worse if you try and move her out. I have a grandson that's 20 mo and my dil's sister is a nurse and told her she should start night weaning. So now my grandson is crying at night, poor little guy. My son, the baby's father, is a RN and have been a LLL Leader and we tell her he doesn't need to wean but no, she listens to her sister. He is hungry at night! He is underweight. Your little girl could be hungry and need a snack.
I agree with letting the child pick out the bed and sheets, ect. Its hardest with the oldest. Younger sibs can sleep in the same room with the older sibs.

Above it sounds like I'm saying my son has been a LLL Leader. It's me that has been a LLL Leader.
