Re: Co-sleeping failure...aka get this kid out of my bed!!
Can you make a big deal out of it. Like she is such a big girl and has all these new big girl privledges like sleeping in her own bed and having a special thing that only she is allowed to do. We did bribe DS when we moved DD into his room around a year. He got new sheets that he picked out and we talked it up a lot. When we first moved them out of our room though we just gave them lots of hugs and affirmations that this was what they needed and we were still here and they were okay but did not cave. I mean I sat on the floor next to the bed for few nights but we didn't back track and it really only took about a week to get used to it. They slept SO much better so I think they felt better and that made it easier.
