DD is 10 months old and has always fallen asleep lying next to me. So for naps, we have a little bed on our bedroom floor for her and she nurses, then turns back and forth for awhile, and then falls asleep. Then I either get up or take a nap too.

DH and I would like her to be able to sleep in her crib for naps, but we still want to co-sleep at night. How do we do this? For her whole life she has fallen asleep cuddled up next to me. It would just be so much easier because I have a two year old as well and it takes me so long to get DD to sleep and I feel so bad that DS is by himself in the house.

Any tips would be so so helpful!

Thanks,
Sheree

Have you tried nursing her and laying her down in the crib? Does she wake right when you put her down? I have twin 10 mos olds and I nurse them to sleep and put them in the crib for naps and co sleep at night. I have a monitor and when I hear her start to wake up I go in the room before she feels alone. I also use white noise and a rolled up blanket that goes up against her legs to sense that I am there.
