She doesn't wake when her daddy goes to bed? Does she seem to wake easily for other noises besides yours?
If she sleeps through everything but you, sure, it might work - worth a try!
My DD (18mo) is a light sleeper - she wakes at any tiny noise, even with music or white noise in the room. She settles back down nursing, though, and also uses a pacifier when she doesn't want milk anymore.
The screaming is my biggest concern, I think - why do you think she wakes screaming even if she's right next to you? Do you think she could be unsure where she is and worried she's in her crib? Have you thought about ditching the crib altogether and just letting her sleep in your bed from the start? Is she teething or is there something else that could be going on making her uncomfortable? Just brainstorming...
