  • Do it supper nanny style:
    Every time she gets in your bed your bring her back to her bed. You'll do this 100 times before she finally passes out. If she starts to get up before you leave the room wait at her door, as soon as she gets to the door turn around and walk or pick her up and back into bed. Do not talk to her or give her attention. Just do it. This goes on and on and on. She will eventually fall asleep. You may not get very much sleep, It can take hours. The following do the same thing, she will eventually get it.
