Hate to say it, but ....tough love! Got to just do it and stick with it. If you can be consistent for a few days, you may find your child sleeping in their own bed quicker than you expect. I still get up occassionally at night with my 18 mnth yr old..(youngest of 3 girls) but, even in the middle of the night, I make it a point to comfort her for a little bit - and put her back in her own room (unless she is sick or something out of the ordinary is going on..I might make a concession). Its going to be a bit hard the first couple of nights while he/she cries it out/gets used to it - but it'll be worth it! I also find having a bed time routine you stick to every night helps the kids wind down.....dinner, bath, story, bed...etc.
