Every kid is different. My son always went to bed easy, but my second daughter was a struggle. Now my third child was even harder to go to sleep until I got her on a schedule. Now it is a little easier but she still wakes up at night every one in a while screaming and made because she wanted to be asleep and I'll I could do was rock her until she fell back to sleep then put her back in her crib. Hang in there it should get easier. My kids went straight from the crib to there big kid bed and they liked that so much that I never had them in a toddler bed(but had railes to keep them from falling out. Good Luck, hope one of these sugestions help.

My son has been in a bed for months now since he was like 14 months old...you might try putting the mattress on the floor without the frame. She might be afraid of falling off.

oh, OK. Haven't gotten that far myself yet. I've heard though maybe trying to let her pick out some 'special sheets' or blanket/pillow or something like that. So she gets excited about being in the bed. I'm leaving my little guy in his crib until he can get out of it..then make the move to bed. Hope you get some good suggestions though, I'll need them for myself too.

Are you saying your moving from a crib to a bed or moving her from your room to her own room?
