How do I get my 9 month old to sleep in her own bed

Is she currently sleeping in a moses basket? Or something similar? What I did to begin with when I moved my daughter to her own room was place the basket on top of her cot for about a week so she could get used to the room and the possition. Then I removed the basket and placed her in the cotbed with the same blankets so the smell was familar. She was really easy and didn't seem to have any problems. Another thing I did to get her more used to her own bedroom was we would go in every day and simply sit in her rocking chair and read or something so that she started to associate comfort and peace with the room, we would look at the border (zoo animals) and name them, look at her fish and feed them..... so yeah. :)

What have you tried?
