We were/sort of still are having that problem too. I moved our son to a twin sized bed so that I could lay beside him. To start, I laid beside him until he fell asleep, then I laid beside him until he was almost asleep and then got up and sat at the end of the bed. Now, I am laying him down to sleep at sitting at the end of the bed until he falls asleep. It is my ambition to move to sitting by the door and eventually just laying him down to sleep and leaving. I also put a baby gate in front of the door if he wakes at night and sit at the end of the bed until he falls asleep again. We'll see if my plan works.

we stopped feeding my son right before that age at night. For awhile he would get up and we'd walk him right back into bed. For a bit then we put up the gate and left the door open so we could hear him if something was wrong. then took the gate away and closed the door, then we left the door a lil open. He started coming out again go figure. Now we close the door when we put him down and yes he knows how to open the door. After he's asleep we then open the door. It's taken awhile and in steps but consistency just keep walking her back to her own bed. She'll get the idea.
