I am newly married... My husband has 3 kids and I have 2... Going into this I have been prepared for some bumps in the road but we are having a major issue with his 5 year old little girl. She refuses to sleep in her bed! It is a major battle full of tears and I am getting tired of the drama... Any suggestions?!!

If that is what she is used to at home then you are going to have a fight on your hands. Get your husband to speak to the mother and see if you can both break the cycle of co sleeping. It is very hard for a child that has co slept to suddenly stop. You need both parents to be actively trying to stop this.

bless you i would feel same huni have you spoke to ur hubby bout how you feel ? hate to sound mean but id make her sleep in her bed with mine from day one they sleep in their own bed but ur situation is diff bless ya is there a reason she doesnt like her bed ? you could try buying her some diff bedding that she chooses or leave a lamp on things like that perhaps if she does still refuse id be stern with her i dont know how far you discipline her with her not being yours but each and every time she comes in your bed take her back the first time explain she is a big girl and needs to sleep in her own bed the second time dont say a word an so on and so on it will be a lengthy process but she will eventually realize there isnt any point comin in your room as you will only take her back
