Red face Sleep help...again!

So my daughter (20 months), sleeps with us now. This all started with some night-terrors. She would be screaming in her sleep and it when she woke up she would just scream and cry. Before that, she welcomed going into her crib (right next to my bed) for sleep. Now, when I go to put her in their she screams and cries hysterically until I just can't bare it and get her out. This is kind of an issue because she sleeps all over the place and takes up half the bed. I do love waking up to her cute little face and kisses though. I don't know what to do. By the end of the night she ends up sleeping by my feet. I am afraid she may be suffocated by dh or I. She doesn't stay where she falls asleep at all. SHe sleeps like a clock. I am not sure what to do. Even if I try to lay her in their after she goes to bed it is like she knows I am not there.

Re: Sleep help...again!

Guh. Poor baby.. and poor mommy!

Could you try putting her down in her crib a few times a day just for a few minutes, and stay in the room with her? Put her in there just to play, or even to eat (if you're willing to deal w/the mess, lol), to help her associate the crib with good times.

Could you move the crib or a co-sleeper or something next to the bed?

Good luck, mama--I never had this issue so hopefully some of the other moms will have better advice!

mama
I know too well what you mean!!! After having had some probs with DS not sleeping well he too started coming into our bed (his crib is in his room and until the probs with interrupted sleep and wanting milk x times at night he was always fine with sleeping there) and it's not peaceful! As much as I love having him next to me in bed, sleeping, but I can't get real good sleep myself. If I try putting him in his crib (he can get out on his own as it converts into a toddler bed which we had to do since he was trying to climb over the bed railing) he cries hysterically.

Sorry I don't have any advice for you, mama, I can only offer you
