My (future ex) mother in law, whom her son slept in her bed until he was 13!!!, got my daughter in a horrible habit of wanting to sleep in bed with an adult. Chelsea gets upset when I tell her that its time for bed, she will continue crying and sometimes screaming when I put her down. She climbs out of her bed and starts knocking on her door. I have recently caved in and let her sleep on my bed. Lets back up a bit, when chelsea was a baby, she was a crib baby. She hated her bassinet and my bed was too small for her to be in it. She loved the space of her crib. She loved sleep. She knew when it was bedtime, and she went down with a smile. Now, I'm feeling like I'm being mean by having her sleep in her own bed, in her own room. She gets upset and I feel horrible. How am I supposed to get her to adapt and it ends up with a win/win outcome???
