  • just keep putting her back in bed without talking to her like. first fwe times remind her its night night time and put her back in bed and after the first few times you just put her back in bed. eventually she'll stay and sleep and after a few nights the habit of sleeping in her room./bed will be back in place. just stay consistant

  • i agree with elsa salsaaa eventually she should get it, maybe even try getting a steady nightly ruitine like take a bath rock in the glider reading a story then bed, and if she still wont stop crying and coming back maybe give it a few nights staying with her in her bed...with my son ive finally gotten him in his crib by playing bedtime music and holding his hand

  • That is one of the hardest things to break a child from. When I had my first kid, I was a single mom so I let her sleep with me every night until I meet my dh and he didn't feel confortible with his ss sleeping in our bed so he made me break her. She cried all the time but soon she stoped and got used to sleeping in her room.
