My 18 month old will only sleep in my bed. I think it is starting to take a toll on my relationship with my husband. Any ideas on how to get her to sleep by herself? I have tried to let her cry it out but she can go for hours!

Do you do bed, bottle and bath then bedtime story? I know thats a silly question. :/ also the dissappearing chair as they call it. You put her in bed, let her cry 5 mins, go in touch her head come out, this should go on for a lil while then eventually she learns you are 'still' there and she will go to sleep, but make sure shes really tired and dont worry if shes crying lots it will make her eyes tired and she should sleep quicker after.
