My little girl is 2 and used to sleep alone until her second birthday. Now she wont go to sleep without me laying with her and will wake up screaming if i put her in her own bed. I don't know what to do to get her back in the groove of sleeping alone.

i have the same problem with my daughter she will not sleep alone, an dif i try to leave the room she will scream and cry. What i did when my daughter got a big girl bed was i told her that thi sis her bed, and this is mommy's bed. My boyfriend and i praised her on having a big girl bed, and sleeping in it. When it was time for bed, i tucked her in , read her a story, and said goodnight to her. She screamed and cried for like 10, 15 mintues the first couple of nights, but now it has been about 2 months and she has been sleeping in their ever since. This worked for my daughter, i didnt give her a choice, i just told her that this was her bed, and this is where she sleeps. like i sai dit worked for me, hopefully it will work for you! good luck!

Well this is a tough one. You should try to introduce him to sleeping alone during nap times. At first you may need to sit beside him and stay in the room, until he falls sleep for 1 week. After this slowly move closer to the door until you are out of his room. If he cries, shoosh him or pat his bum, try not lifiting him out of the crib, unless absolutly neccesary.
