I made a bed time ritual. Bath books, and then we would talk bout what we were going to do the next day. Kissed her goodnite and then put her into bed. every 20 mintues my husband and I would walk in there together and lay her down tell her we loved her. Then wait another 20 mintues and do it again. the first night it was about 45 minutes of her crying, but each nite after that it was less and less crying. It took us only 4 days for her to get into the routine and she has been sleeping by herself, and on her own. It was the best thing we did. We have aour nites to ourselves and she is ok. Just get a routine before bed time starting an hour before with bath, books and whatever you want to do. Then put her to bed and leave for for 20 minutes and go in there together. It will be very hard the first couple days, I cried. But it takes time for them to adjust. I hope this helps.
