  • try a toddler bed start it off in your room tell her she is a big girl like mama. it will be a few hard nights but should get better if you refuse to let her sleep in you bed. one night you slip up and let her might get her back doing it.

  • A toddler bed is a good place to start, even if you have to put it in your room to start her out on! Make a big deal about it to her too. Say something like "Oh your such a BIG girl sleeping in a big girl bed!!" Then when she gets used to it and your comfortable with her sleeping in it move it into her own room. That is what we had to do with our son and it worked really well!! Good Luck Mama!

  • I had the same problem with my 12 month old daughter. So about a week and a half ago i moved her crib into our room . I started by putting her in the crib at nap time then at bed time, I put her crib by my bed so that she can see me and it seems to be working really well for me and i have my bed back!
