How do I get my 12 month old baby to sleep alone?

I have a 12 month old baby and I'm trying to get her to sleep by her self in a crib. I give her a bottle of water to go to bed with and she's fine when I'm in the room but when I walk out she just stands up and cries. Any tips?

I let my son cry it out. he was 6 months at the time and cried for about an hour the first time and it gradually got less over the next few days until he stopped crying. it sucks but its over with quickly. you could periodically go back in the room and let her know she is safe and you are just in the next room

just let her cry for a few minutes... tell her good night and leave... let her cry for a few minutes... go back in pat her on her back lay her down rub her back, tell her good night and leave, let her cry for about 5 minutes and repeat
