My name is Ally i have a 9 month old who doesn't want to sleep in her crib or pack n play. She sleeps in our bed and it is really starting to become uncomfortable. I know i created this problem because i should have tried to move her earlier. I need help in fixing this because i don't want to be the mom with a 10 yr old sleeping in the bed with me! Thank you.

Have you tried moving her into a crib after she has been sleeping awhile? Our daughter (8 months) falls asleep in our bed and then we will move her into her crib and she will normally sleep there the rest of the night.

What you could try is putting something of yours and your hubby's in her crib with her. Most babies feel more comforted when they can smell you. Like a shirt you sleep in, or you could get her a blanket and one night you sleep with it and the other your hubby or if you aren't comfy with a blanket in her bed do it with her crib sheet. And just be persistent and don't give in if she cries a little it won't hurt her, just keep checking on her to see she is ok. By now you know what her cries mean. Where does she nap? You should try to always make sure she naps in the same place she sleeps at night. If she falls asleep somewhere else pick her up and move her there. Try to put her asleep awake but drowsy. You could also try music or white noise in her room. I hope some of this helps.
