how can I help her sleep?!

My 2 year old daughter has been in her toddler bed for 2 weeks now. Her bed is in my room and most the time she will only fall asleep while someone (usually me, while my mom takes care of my almost 6 month old son) stays in there with her. She travels all over her bed and sometimes falls out during the night, in her sleep. Some nights she cries out in her sleep, either does it until I calm her down, put her in bed with me or sometimes it is only for a second and she goes back to sleep. If I put her in bed with me I don't get much sleep. I have never seen anyone move, kick, roll all over the bed and me or sleep as bad as she does. Any suggestions on how I can improve her sleep?!

honestly just keep putting her back and reassuring her. Play on the bed with her during the day so that she knows that it is a fun and friendly place to be. Fill the bed with soft toys and cushions so that she doesn't feel lost in such a large place. You could also put a bed barrier on the side of the bed so that she does not fall out. Just be patient and keep putting her back in. She will get it eventually but it is going to take a lot of patience from you. Good luck.
