When my daughter was born in July 2013 me and my fiance decided to put baby in a bassinet next to our bed so she wouldn't seem so far away in her room. At 5 months, she began to pull herself up and we were afraid she would flip herself into the floor so I began to lay her in her crib at bedtime. She would lay there and wiggle around but would fall asleep shortly after I shushed her and hummed a lullaby. For the past month or so my daughter pitches a fit when I lay her in her crib at bed time. It doesn't matter if I sing, hum, shush, pat, rub, or anyything else I do she will pull herself up to the side of the crib and just stand there and cry. I can do the whole "let her cry it out" method but she will literally stand in her crib and cry until I come get her no matter how long I leave her there. I can lay her back down and reassure her I am there but she will not have it! The only way I can get her to sleep in her crib is if she was already asleep when I laid her in it. I can lay her in my bed between me and her Dad and she is out..just that simple. I want my bed back and not to mention since this has started my sex life has went out the window! Please help me with any tips, advice or positivity! Thanks so much in advance:)
