  • I went through this as well. Got the best advice from a mom at work. She emphasised the importance of absolute follow thru if you start this. Put the child in his own bed with all the hugs and kisses. No matter how much they whine and cry and scream do not let them in your bed. Go in periodically to kiss them goodnight. This may take 2-3 nights but it will work. My youngest one cried so hard that she almost threw up but I refused to give in. Three nights later problem solved! I was so thankful that it hadn't taken any longer. Good Luck
