I have 2 kids and never had a problem with getting my son to bed, but with my daughter she would only sleep in her bouncer as a new born and now will only sleep in her swing. My husband and I are sleeping on our pull out couch to be near her and our new king sixe bed is going unused! Please help, I will take any suggestions, it just seems like she likes the angle and the motion. HELP!

You could also try to rock her at nap time and bed time. I have a recliner that rocks also. I just lean it back a little and rock. Then when my daughter falls asleep I put her in the bed. She also won't go to sleep without motion. Hope this can help.

I never thought about starting her off at nap time. Thank you, and with the angle thing in the bed, I have tried that and she rolls off it at night and get wedged between that and her crib, but it works wonders while she stays on it.

if its the angle then maybe you could get one of those sleep positioners that angles. they make them to put in cribs. ive seen parents who have had to use them. maybe during the day for her naps you could just ease her into sleeping in her bed or wherever you want her to nap, because she will get tired enough and fall asleep no matter where she is. if she fusses just wait like 5 min then sooth her, then wait 10 and then sooth her. eventually she will get it.
