My youngest DD is sleeping in bed with us. Has been since four months after she was in the PICU for a week and we just never broke the habit. Now I think it's time to break the habit. But when we lay her down in the pack and play she pops her head up and screams bloddy murder! What is it ??! and how do i fix it ?

I kinda had this issue with my son. I just made sure his bed was next to mine. I would also hold my hand over the edge of the playpen, just so he knew I was there. It will get better, just takes time. Try putting like something of yours that smells like you, in the playpen. Might help. Good luck!

How old is she? My dd is almost 18 months and we can not get her out of our bed either! She makes herself throw up and all! I have no idea what to try anymore but I have to figure it out bc we have baby #2 due in June!

 I agree with cupcake.

How old is DD? My children slept in our room/bed with us until they were ready to be on their own.

Get a side by side bassinet sleeper. It sits alongside your bed, where se feels safe, and yet is still seperate.
