  • try holding her and rocking her to sleep. My Dr. always told me when you are trying to break a baby from something a night or 2 of crying and they will forget about it. I had to do that when i broke my 7 month old from pacifier she cried it out one night and then the next night she went right to sleep. Good luck.

  • 6 month old loves his swing too! We started putting him in his crib during the day now and I just had to let him cry it out a bit. You can also rock her until she is pretty drowsy but still awake and put her in her crib. Good luck!
