sleeping through the night

My daughter is is 17 months and is still not sleeping through the night. I would like some suggestions to try. My husband and I both work so the easy solution is to bring her in our bed. But then we are getting a good sleep. Please help!

I agree. It will be terrible for about 3 days and then the crying should stop. I give my little guy some milk in a cup, cut on the baby einstein lullaby dvd and then let him cry for a few minutes. He also has his own bed he can crawl in and out of so if he wants to play for a little while in his room he can and when he gets tired he crawls in his bed and goes to sleep. It seems to help the little bit of freedom.

You can try a night time routine. Give her a bath and then read to her then lay her down and let her know its time for bed. She may cry for a while but its the best thing to do becuase you dont want her ending up sleeping with you forever. Trust me my mom never let my sister sleep in her bed and shes gonna be 18 and still sleeping with her. It sounds harsh to let them cry but it will be worth it in the end.
