How to put my 17 month daughter to sleep

Im trying to get her to sleep in her own bed. She"s the only one of my 4 kids I had this problem with. Rvrfytime its time for bed she runs from her bed lol. So when I catch her and put her in the bed all she does is cry and when she finally stop cring and I lay in my bed its like she smells me and stands up in her bed and cry until I get up. Im not a hard sleeper so I hear her when she stands up in her bed. One time I tried to ignore so she open her papmer and pee her bed smh so I took her out the bed.
I need so kind of advice she drives me crazy.

  • I have found that my 21 month old DD has a hard time transitioning from to day to night because she gets all hyper. So What we do is have a "slow down" time. Every night before she goes to bed I read her a story or two in the rocking chair and then when I put her in her crib I rub her back to help her get comfortable. I find that the process we go through every night helps her calm down and fall asleep.... and ever since we started she hasn't had a problem going to bed. Then again.... every kid is different and this might not work for everyone.

  • try giving her your shirt that you wore that day, the smell of you may help her sleep.
