Dd and I have co-slept since she was born so the last 2.5 years. My Dh has been in the other bedroom. I have been starting the night in with him them when Dd wakes up I would move into her room and stay the rest of the night. Dh has never liked the idea of co-sleeping and we have agreed to end the co-sleeping but I could really use some advice on how to best approach this for Dd. For the last 3 nights I have gone in her room each time she woke up but sometimes it takes forever to get her back to sleep and I am exhausted. Last night she woke up 6 times! She knew I was in her bed while sleeping so she was able to transition into the next sleep cycle without waking but now I am not there and she is waking up and wanting/needing me. I would love to continue co-sleeping with her but our marriage can't do it anymore.
Advice on how to make this transition easy for all parties, especially dd, would be greatly appreciated. Dh wants her in her own room and us in ours so she can't have a mattress in our room etc. I already tried that idea with him but it was a solid no.
Please any ideas at all!!!
