My Life To-Do List

Does anyone know a good way to get a 10 month old to sleep in her own bed :)? She will stay in her bed until about 1am and then she will fight to get into my bed.. and all the working moms out there know that at 1 am you want to do nothing more than sleep
Answered on 2nd August 2010:
I share your problem but you're lucky to have started her at 10 months. I managed to "kick her out" of our bed at 18 months. A good night is if she stays in her bed all night. An ok night is if she comes to my bed around 3am. A bad night is if she can't sleep unless I'm next to her and I sleep on her bed! The only advice I can offer is to praise her when she stays in her bed. She become increasingly reasonable as she gets older. But if you need the sleep NOW, my cousin just put her in another room and let her cry it out. She called it a week of "pure hell" unfortunately but now she sleeps the whole night through. (Note that when you leave her in another room, you have to come in every hour or so to comfort her but don't pick her up or talk to her. Let her know she's not abandoned but just being "disciplined.") Good luck!
