i am 19 and my daughter is 13 months. she got strep throught about 5 months ago and me and her father let her sleep with us becuse she was spiking a really high fever and i wanted to keep an eye on her. but ever since then she wont go to sleep without being in bed with me. i have to let her fall asleep in bed with me and then put her in her crib.and shell wake up at about 3am and cry until i bring her back to bed with me. its the same with taking naps. it doesnt really help that she shares a room with us. ive been thinkin about maybe trying a toddler bed becuase she sleeps so well in our bed. shell get in and out of it by herself and shes walking and everything. so im wondering if the whole"look its a big girl bed! your a big girl now!" thing will work. any advice would be greatly appreciated!

her docter is constantly telling me to let her cry herself asleep but we live with my parents so nobody in the house can stand to hear her cry and hypervenilate. she sounds like someones murdering her so if i dont pick her up my mother will and if we dont her daddy will get her lol its a neverending process. and she will only go to sleep for me now. it doesnt matter who has her if she cant listen to my heart while she goes to sleep then shes not goin to sleep. so now my parents cant babysit unless i put her to bed first. and god forbid if she wakes up and im not there. im only 19 and im a stay at home mom so to keep my sanity i need to go out with my fiance and some friends at least once every other month and I CANT!

NO THAT WILL NOT WORK! MY SON IS TWO AND HE WAS SICK AT 6 MONTH'S, AND HES STILL IN BED WITH US. BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, I COULD NOT DO IT BUT THE DOCTOR SAID TO LET THEM CRY IT OUT! I JUST COULD NOT LET MY BABY CRY SO IT DID NOT WORK 4 ME. BUT I DO NO PEOPLE WHO DID AND IT REALLY WORKS. SO GO GET WHAT TO EXPECT THE FIRST YEAR, AND GO TO THE CHAPTER ABOUT SLEEPING, AND FOLLOW EVERY THING THAT IT TELL YOU TO DO!!! I WISH I WOULD HAVE DID IT BACK THEN, BECAUSE THE LONGER YOU WAIT THE HARDER ITS GOING TO GET!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE GO GET THAT BOOK! OR A BOOK BY DR. FIRBER. IT TAKES ALOT OF TIME ITS NOT AN OVER NIGHT THING. BUT IT WORK! SO GET THAT BOOK.
