  • You place her back in her crib and let her fuss. She will eventually fall asleep and she will learn that the crib is her bed. Don't give into her crying.

  • It's tough, but i've had to let my boys cry it out a few times. It's heartbreaking to hear them bawl, but it's SO worth my sleep and sanity in the years to follow!! My suggestion is dont let her go to sleep in your bed anymore and get a good bedtime routine so she knows what to expect every night!

  • Thank you both for the advice and I have tried doing this a couple times, but we live in an apartment and the neighbors have asked why I let her cry at 10 or 11 at night.

  • Just keep putting her back into her crib
