and even if we somehow miraculously get her to fall asleep in her own bed, she manages to climb upstairs to our room in the middle of the night and sleep with us. How can I get her to sleep i her bed alone all night? HELP!!!

moving is a big change for a little one, in her little mind it turns her whole world upside down. everything that she knows is different. her room is gone (regardless of if you have the same furnature) mommy's room is not where it used to be, my bed is on the wrong side of the room, the world outside that i knew and loved is gone. you have to realize that each time you move you uproot her and change everything she just got used to, she will act out for a while, and her sleep patterns will change... you might want to try to minimize the moving. I am about as bad about moving as you are, since my little ones were born i moved often, but i made sure i kept them in the same school district and i kept the same baby sitter, but we moved approx ever two years, and i kept as much the same as i could... but it still was hard on them.

Well thank you for that advice Holly, I will try that tonight and see how it goes. I have been battling this for 6 months now so hopefully this will be ended soon. She did phenomenal sleeping on her own before we moved in August, but ever since she has not slept alone and she has had other behavioral issues also. I just feel kind of stuck, especially since we are about to move again, I do not want to have to go through this forever.

just be consistent, and when she comes into your bed, i would allow a 2 minute cuddle and then take her back into her bed, be consistent, every time
