I've tried her crib, her bassinet she sleeps in at night, music, mobile, a few minutes of crying it out (I got her once her fussy crying turned to more actual crying), music, standing beside the bed and calming her. Nothing works. I'm planning to transition from the bassinet in our room to her crib at night soon and I'm afraid it's not going to go well.
go into it with positive thinking.

My 19month old has always been a horrible napper (with some spurts of awesome napping). but she sleeps great at night.

They're really more different than we think: napping and nighttime.

Right now, she naps 30 minutes. That's it. Which means I have about 5 more minutes :P but at night? easy peasy.

ETA: and given the choice? I take nighttime sleep over napping anyday.
