Our daughter just turned 5 in the beginning of February. But she still will NOT sleep alone in her room. She sleeps with either me in my bed, or my husband has to sleep with her in her bed (full size bed). I know this is not going to cut it much longer. I thought that the situation would be fine for a while, but now it has obviously gone on too long and I am having a heck of a time breaking her of this. I have read all kinds of suggestions including putting her in her room and letting her cry it out, but its unbearable! It is difficult to be consistent as my husband has a work schedule that changes frequently and at some point he has to sleep. What we have done in the past is wait for her to fall asleep and then move her to her room, but either she will wake up and crying and move in our bed, or we will fall asleep before she does and nobody ends up moving. Are we weak? I would say yes. We need help. I need the Supernanny! Help.....
