I had the same problem with my oldest daughter because I let her sleep with me so often she got use to it. When I wanted her to sleep in her own bed she would freak and to get peace at night I would give in and let her sleep with me. Somethings that I have tried and some worked and some didn't, I hope these help you.
Put your baby in his crib/bed and sit by it. It reassure them that you're not going anywhere. Every night and even at nap time, do the same. As your baby gets more comfortable sit a little further away.
Some babies just need the comfort of Mommy. So get a pillow or a stuffed animal and put it close. Also snuggle baby in tightly to make it feel as if it laying close to you.
Baby will cry but its ok. Baby isn't hurt so don't give in. Be strong. Hope this helps.

Is she currently in her own crib, or does she sleep with you? I've never had any of my children to sleep with me, so if that is the case, I may not be too much help.
