when my daughter turned a lil bit of a month old she got hospitalized because she was screaming and was having trouble breathing so we rushed her to the emergency room and they said she had RSV really bad and if we would of waited any longer then we wouldve lost her they had her on oxygen because her left lung collapsed she was on oxygen for 3 days and she got to go home once they made sure she was fine with out the help of oxygen so i was so scared to put her in her own bed because i thought she would quit breathing on me and i would lose her and now she wont even sleep in her own bed even tho its right next to mine and she is already 14 months old every time i try and put her on her bed she screams and if i wait till she falls asleep she will wake up later and climbdown off hers and come crying to me. I dont know how to break her from sleeping with me and i dont believe in letting them cry it out and theyll get over it DOES ANYONE HAVE ADVICE FOR ME PLEASE AND I REALLY APPERCIATE IT THANKS

unfortunatly it takes time to break the habit. our daughter is nearly 4 and she still comes in early in the morning. but she used to sleep in our bed. just keep putting her in her bed when she goes to sleep give her a soft teddy to cuddle. when she wakes up and comes in let fall asleep and move her back to her own bed. do this every time she wakes up and eventually she will start sleeping longer in her bed. as i said ours is nearly 4 and we did that from when she was 2 now she falls asleep we put her in her bed and she comes in at 5:30 - 6 am good luck
