Re: Does this seem normal or should I get my child checked out?

But the first 3 nights, we get her up, let her come in our bed, tried to rock, etc, and all we did was prolong the going back to sleep. She didn't go back to sleep at all the first night, and won't until we put her in her crib and walk out. I am dreading the switch to a toddler bed.
Ah, if only my DD crib-trained... Her CIO lasts 4 hours until dawn, even when we ARE there comforting her. My friend was telling me about setting her DD up with her first toddler bed. She learned that it was helpful to keep a night light on, versus complete sensory deprivation in the crib. Somehow it gave this particular toddler a sense of security.
