So I know all the books and news articals say you should start early with this but I have failed. I love cuddling my LO and working all day when I come home to put her to bed I'll sit for an hour and nurse and rock her long past her falling asleep. I've left her for the first time the other night to go out and she would not go to bed without me, even for nap time somebody's always with her while she passes out in her play pen. She does sleep through the night but as soon as she wakes up its scream central until I run and grab her. I can't put her Down and walk away either. If I step out, or if anybody steps out of her play area to go to the bathroom even she starts screaming. I'm not for letting her cry it out, she seems so traumatized the couple times I tried. Any advice? I really want her to be okay with being put in her crib or put in her play area alone.
