i would just let her cry she will be tired the next night and sleep thew the night  but if you really want to hold her so she can sleep put a light blanket on your chest and let her hold it in her hand so when she falls asleep she has it and u put her down she still thinks you are holding her cause you didn't have to open her hand and she is still holding it.

I'm a big believer in letting them cry it out but i know a lot of people don't believe in that

Maybe give her a pacifier right before you put her in the crib.

 dont let her be completely alseep when you put her down, that way she is aware that she is soon to be alone and becomes okay with it.

 ...if thats not an option, then as you lay her down put a little of your body weight on her body do she feels the pressure and comfort of your smell and heartbeat, then slowly push a lil firmer as you slip your arm out from around her, and then very slowly raise your body off hers and tiptoe out of the room.
