okay here is the problem. I have a 15 month old daughter who sleeps very well in her crib by herself. me and my husband put her to bed at 9-9:30pm and she puts herself to sleep. sometimes in the middle of the night she wakes up and crys a little bu usually no more than 10 to 15 minutes and then she puts herself back to sleep. my husband gets up as soon as he hears her and puts her in bed with us and i hate that he does this. he claims he cant sleep with her crying in her room. but i'm afraid if this keeps up she will be 7 and wanna sleep with mommy and daddy and i cant have that! plus we plan to have more children someday so what are we gonna do have family bed everynight? what can i do to make him quit. he doesnt wanna seem to give it up when it comes to her sleeping in her own bed. any suggestions?

We put a couple of my daughters favorite hard toys in bed with her so when she woke up she would find them and play. Plus we made a rule no babies in our bed if they have nightmares or get up we would comfort them and put them back in their bed.

he has to stop binging he into the bed! that is if you really want he to sleep all night in her own bed. it will take will take a few horrible nights but it will be totally worth it!! no baby has ever "died" from crying themselves back to sleep. she will not remember it and trust me it will hurt you more than her! if your husband just cant take it send him away for a few just kidding he has to deal with it too. i wish you all the luck and remeber children thrive off of consistancy.

My daughter and husband were the same way. It was hard listening to her cry in the middle of the night but it aventually worked just leaving her. Now occasionally in the mornings she will come curl in bed with us but we deffinatly do not have those nights anymore!

I would try to put it this way. It may be a week of bad sleep but eventually she will figure it out and sleep right through in her own bed. It's a week of bad for the rest of your life of good. Plus she'll be happier too! Good Luck.
