How do you get your 12 month old to sleep in her own bed? Can't even lay her down when she's asleep.

We use to be able to lay her down when she was asleep, but a couple weeks after we moved she stopped that. If we try to lay her down she wakes up right away and starts crying. We have tried the whole walking away and letting her cry, she goes from crying to screaming and holding her breath. We want our bed back and a good night sleep again. We can't hardly get her to be in her crib at all even to play with a toy.

We need help............

my son holds his breath too. the bad news is that you just need to let her. she will learn very quickly that its not going to get her the response she wants. the good news is that once she passes out she starts to breathe again. It causes no ill effects and this phase will pass too.
