My son used to like sleeping with us everynight too until he was about 4 months old. He wouldn't sleep with us everynight but if he wansn't in the bed with us he was in the bassinett next to our bed. A baby needs to know that they will be comforted and loved so it's perfectly normal to hold them when they cry and let them know they are loved. It's when they get older you have to worry about holding them alot. . Try rocking your baby to sleep and letting her sleep in her bassinett by your bed at first, but not in the bed. That way she is not with you but still close. Every other night start rocking her to sleep and putting her in her crib making sure she falls completly asleep. Eventually she will get used to it. This is what I did with my son and he sleeps in his crib every night! Also like Brittany said...try putting something that smells like you next to your baby, that will comfort her.

My son was also like that he never wanted to sleep in his crib always wanted to sleep with us.So what i did was i got a single bed for him and i put it next to our bed and pused them against each other so that he couldnt roll off.After that he started sleep on his own bed but still gets in with me in the morning.It helps them sleep better when they are close to you.When he sterted crying i just put my hand on him and hed stop crying.

i have 3 children a 1 and a halph year old a 3 year old and a 4 year old my one year old sleeps with me most nights and my 3 and 4 year old climb in at some time during the night some nights it can be a bit of a pain and my new man gets a bit anoyed but they r only small for a wile and they grow so quick cherrish the closeness cause when they hit the teans you will be begging them to spend time with you i slept on the couch with my youngest for 3 months much to my ex hate but that was a bad relationship another story some people may say they should sleep in there own bed but i say let them sleep with you what harm can it really do.

I had the same problem with my son, try putting her in her basinett during the day let her take naps in it. I also took a shirt that I had on all day and place it next to him your scent is on the shirt and she will think you are next to her. This worked for my son try it and she if it works. Let me know the results
