I need help!
I can't seem to get my 15 month old to sleep in her own bed! She's been this way since she was born & at first it was nice having her with us but now it's got to stop! Can anyone help me?

Yikes, that's a tough one! I can relate because my daughter slept with me since she was a little baby and when it came time to have her sleep on her own bed it was a nightmare! My suggestion is that you continue to encourage her to sleep on her bed, maybe by getting her a "new friend" like a stuffed animal who cannot go to sleep unless she snuggles with them. Also maybe one of those types of night lights that reflect on the ceiling with little images that might help distract her. If you continuously cave in, she will continue... I know, my daughter was about 7 when she finally started to sleep in her bed without nightly interruptions! I wish I had a head on solution to give you! Don't lose patience and good luck!!

Thanks for the reply! The nightlight is a good idea, she doesn't have a problem falling asleep in her bed in her room, but if she wakes up in the middle of the night alone she cries until I cuddle her :( will definitely try the night light thing tho
