LAdies, I am wondering if any of your have advice for me. I probably could have put this in another forum, but I posted once before about this problem and everyone gave me the same answer, let her CIO. Okay, so my 21 month old daugher won't sleep in her crib for more than an hour or two at night. Crying it out is not an option, one b/c she'll wake up my 9 month old, and also b/c I just can't let her cry, she's old enough where she'ss cared, and she screams, and when I go get her she's hysterical. When I bring her into my bed she's perfectly fine, she cuddles down next to me and goes to sleep, and sleeps right thru till morning. I wouldn't have a problem with this, except now she's started kicking in her sleep, moving around a lot, and i'm afraid she's going to kick me in the stomach, and i'm 9 weeks preggo. Also, I would kind of like the bed to myself at night, it's my only free time b/c DH is in anotehr state working right now, and I'm juggling 2 kids, selling my house, and being pregnant all at once. So, my question is how do I get her to sleep in her crib without waking up every night screaming? Is it maybe time for a toddler bed? If so, how do I go about transitioning her into one. I'm asking you all b/c everyone keeps telling me to let her cry it out, and I just can't emotionally do it! everyone tells me i'm spoiling her by going and getting her, but I don't think I am, she's my baby and she's crying for me, I can't ignore that, can I? Please help!

Go for the toddler bed girl... But make sure you tell her that she is going to be a big girl... Then get her a night light... I know people say no... But trust me I did and I loved it...

I also agree that a toddler bed might be a good idea! Maybe even starting out with the toddler bed next to your bed?

Thanks for the advice! I was thinking about a toddler bed, and starting her out in my room, but what do I do if she doesn't stay in it, and keeps getting int o my bed? I gues sI just have to be consistent and put her back in her bed a thousand times! Thanks so much ladies!

Hey hun my daughter became afraid of her crib as she got older. We started a toddler bed and at first put it next to our bed untill she was used to sleeping in it alone. Then after her sleeping in her bed for a month we moved her to her room. (Althought she still sleeps with me sometimes cause I want her too) Also try giving her a cookie each day AFTER she's spent a night in her bed
