My daughter is 2 but once she turned a year old we got her a toddler bed which she refused to sleep in. At first I would lay down with her in the bed until she got sleepy then day by day I would sit further away from her bed but she still knew I was there, eventually she would fall asleep on her own. Sometimes it helped if she fell asleep in my bed then we would just move her to hers after some time. As they get older they sometimes go backwards into the waking in the nite and crying and what not but its normal. Just try sitting there and slowly moving yourself away until u are eventually sitting near the door.
