My daughter is 14 months old and her dad put her in her todder bed. She was sleeping in it for a while, but here lately she will not sleep in it. We've tried letting her cry it out and bottle.

My son slept on his floor for almost a year before he slept in his bed. I had to lay down with him on the floor until he fell asleep. I have been told when they are ready they will let you know and there is no making them just do it; be patient and she will eventually realize that the bed is a better choice.

Maybe during the day make a tent and play in her bed so at night she remembers the fun and comfort you both had. Use you imagination, play castle and keep the fort up all day.

I am just starting to get my two year daughter to go to sleep in her bed and stay. I tell her it is time to be a big girl and to go lay down with her Princess blanket (one of her faves) and that mommy will come lay down with her. I wait until she falls asleep then leave. When she wakes up in the middle of the night wanting me to come back I lay down again and explain that I am just in the other room and can't stay with her all night. She understands now and doesn't attempt to come into my bed but still wakes up during the night.

Well honey, it might be a security thing. I wouldn't let her cry to much. If she cries it will only make her have nightmares. Be patient Try a big bed.she might feel more secure, after all she is only 14 months old.You might try letting fall asleep with you then put her in her bed.

Does she have a special blanket? Or a toy? Does she nap in it or are you trying night time sleeping in t? We transitioned my son to it first with naps, then overnight. He really began using his blankie then, too. Good luck!
