Hey jillsmommy,


Welcome to the boards.  I think it is important for you to teach your daughter to sleep in her own bed, for her safety and your sanity.  I think you need to let her cry but keep making sure she is safe, really if you let her cry for a little bit it won't hurt her and it won't last long, really.  And it will get shorter and shorter as she learns to self-sooth and put herself back to sleep.


Anyone else have any ideas?
