2 year won't sleep in her bed??

So I recently brought my daughter her own little bed, got a princess bedding everything!!! The first couple of nights it took a while for her to get used to, so I did the whole supernanny thing (placing her back in, without a word)... After a while she just start getting out, throwing fits it's just not working! I know there are moms out there who have this problem, can anyone please give me some advice?? Thanks mommies!!

  • Reward her for staying in her bed, put up a gate so if she gets up she can't leave her room and get back in bed.

  • Since it's something different, you could stay next to her bed and read (book light) until she falls asleep, then after a few nights, move the chair closer to the door. Then once you have moved to the door (can take a week or two), put her to bed and start the supernanny process.

  • Keep doing the Super Nanny thing - put her in, every time. Give her consistency and a bedtime routine. It may take weeks, but it WILL work.
