refusing to sleep in her own room in her own crib

my 10 month old daughter has never had a problem sleeping in her crib before. about 3 months ago we moved into a new apt and she has refused to sleep in her room in her crib since. i've layed her down and tried numerous times to let her cry it out when she's woken up but she doesn't stop crying until i get her and bring her back in my room with me. any advice?

Follow your normal bedtime routine with her, when you put her to bed sit down next to her crib until she falls asleep (having you next to her is reassurance for her) the next night same thing but dont sit as close to the crib, every night get closer to the door, by the time you reach the door she should be fine sleeping on her own! I really hope this helps you, I know it is hard I used to rock my son to sleep every night. So when he had to learn to fall asleep on his own we had quite a few nights where we had to let him cry. It was super hard to listen to but after a couple nights he understood and from them on he went to sleep on his own!
