Lay her down and you sit next to her bed to read her a book when you are done leave her night light on, kiss her, and say good night. Nothing more and walk out. If she gets up once get her by her hand and firmly have her follow you to her bed (do not let her walk in front of you) tell her " mommy said its bedtime and lay her down" if she gets up once more get her by the hand again lay her down and walk out ***NOT a WORD*** she will fuss and cry, buyt the good thing is that she's an only child so you don't have to worry about waking up her siblings. Let her fuss and cry in her bed. You must repeat this every night and don't give up. I know it hurts cause I went through it, your husband might be the weak one (mine was lol) but you must be firm and don't give in cause then you will have her in your bed for the next 5 yrs. Good luck mom....
