Transitioning from Co-Sleeping

Hoping to get some help from mamas who've been there done that.
How do I teach my daughter to sleep in her crib? She will not sleep unless I am laying next to her. That means that twice a day I have to lay down with her and nap. I need for her to learn how to sleep on her own, but have no idea how to even begin that process. I love having her in bed with me but she needs to move to her crib, I need to have surgery soon (gallbladder, nothing big) but I don't want her in bed with me while I'm on pain killers.
Thanks in advance for the info!

Re: Transitioning from Co-Sleeping

I'm not going to be of any help, but want to add my support. My DD cosleeps too and she used to make me take every nap with her. At the time, I didn't mind because she kept me up a lot, so I wanted the naps. She gradually outgrew needing me there beyond her pre nap nursey. She naps alone now and goes to bed before I do. There wasn't a trick with mine, tho, she just kinda did it on her own. Maybe there would be some help in the book "No Cry Sleep Solution" by Elizabeth Pantley? I've only read part of the book in the past and don't remember. GL on your surgery, too! I also need my gb out, but am putting it off as long as possible! Im afraid of my milk drying up or something...
