My daghter is 14 months and sleeps in our bed and nurses through the night. I have been trying to put her back in the crib but am having some difficulties. So here is how the night goes. I nurse her in side laying positin till she falls asleep and unlatches, then i move her to the crib where she sleeps about 2-3 hrs. then i nurse her back to sleep and try to put her back in the crib but every time i set her down she wakes up and wants more boobie. I eventually give in and let her spend the rest of the night in bed with us. I really don't want to do the cry it out method unless that is my last option.(its my fault she is used to sleeping in our bed not hers, why would i want her to feel punished or even worse all alone all f a sudden) I don't mind waking to feed her a few times through the night i just want her to go back in the crib when i am done.

her crib is in my room and she still wakes up. I might try the pacifier if she;ll take it. she only uses one when shes teething and she doesnt really suck on it, but maybe. its worth a try

Have you tried keeping her crib in your room next to your bed, maybe even a pack n play. That way your trip to put her down isn't far enough for her to wake, and if she does you can easy rub her back or hold her hand so she can fall back that way? Maybe even a pacifier?
