    I had to go through the crying stage its horrid but worth it in the end ,....be strong!

    How old is your daughter ? my son ended up in our bed every night till about the age of 3...we were soft and a bit lazy i guess ( he is 25 now lol)...i think if they are poorly or had a really bad nightmare it's ok to come in for a cuddle especially the latter as it takes them away from the nasty dream for a while, but you have to be harsh and put them back in their own bed. How did she end up coming into your bed?

    Oh yes, its horrid - I used to cry I felt so awful. Have you done the slowly slowly approach? I started off by just lying next to her and then each night gradually moved further away until I could just kiss her night and go out. To be honest it didn't last that long as I ended up lying next to her when she was poorly and never broke it. But she does sleep all night in her bed.
    I compromise with the lying down and don't push her to go to sleep on her own.
    What ever works and causes the least stress to you - good luck.

    hi

    she was very unwell and we felt it would be best at the time , however we were guilty coz we did like having her in with us but she adapted too fast to that. then when she was better it was easy to keep her in with us rather than the hassel... however she has only just turned 2 but i really cant have this any longer...m own fault i know

    she is now finally sleeping . i watch super nanny and followed her tips that you tell the child that she has 1 hours before bed ect. also just kept putting her back into bed, i did buckle for a while and stroked her face but then she just went wild again... however we have a wee rest for now hopefully she will sleep all night lol

    Put some whiskey in some warm milk ;-)

    Just make sure you carry on with it tomorrow, otherwise everything you all went through today was pointless

    If she stays in her bed all night make a big fuss of the fact that she slept in her own bed all night, forget about how difficult it was to begin with. Then through the day make a point of telling everyone what a big girl she is for staying in her bed

    good point i couldnt go through all that again for nothing, i am off work for a week so thought if i done it now it would be best - so im not knackered lol

    Ahh reading through your posts I have to say well done for sticking with it, and definately do it again tomorrow.

    My 3 year old has started coming back to my bed again the last week. I told her tonight that she is to stay in her own bed and that I will put her back if she comes into my bed.

    I don't want to end up at square one again either.

    Keep up what you are doing - it will be worth it in the end!

    No pain... no gain.. sorry. I knew better but still fell into bad habits... its heart rendering when they cry... BUT... retrospectively... its all worth it in the end. And not only is it good for you...( and your husband/wife) ... its good for them, and good for other situations where you say " no".. they learn that you mean it, as long as you follow it through ( the difficult bit ) . Good luck.

    how about a nite light or lullaby cd to help, you may have tried these already but if not its worth a try

    big improvement x x

    It's hard once she's got used to being allowed to be with you.

    We are so soft on our youngest, were much harder on our elder kids.

    We had our 6yr old in bed with us last night,but she found it too hot and wanted back in her own.

    Last year we had all 4 of us in 1 bed,it was pushed for space! Cos I messed up a room booking so in we squeezed.

    She's all arms and legs out,alright if your hubby not in bed though.

    I think I've been spoiling our youngest too much really. Took him half an hr of wailing this morning after I told him no to new toys today lol he's becoming a little control freak!

    my little girl is a diva she actually tells ou that shes doesnt like particular shops and shes only 2. lol
    but last night she was sleeping for 8.30 and didnt come back into my room til 7 this morning because she needed a pee. why did i allow her in my bed sooo long. i slept like a baby last night

    My son does the same at 3, he'll see a top he likes, and he'll say... "give that to me.. buy that for me". He's such a fashionista lol
