How did you get her to sleep on her own? My daughter is 13 months and I would like her to learn how to sleep in her crib without it being too traumatic for her, so a no cry approach is what I want... Thinking of moving her crib to our room to start off but would love some advice... The "thing" she is attached to is my skin, preferably my boob... she is always reaching for it and if she finds that it is my husband instead of me she gets really upset.. Def a mommys girl. But I would really love for her to be in her crib because she fidgets so much and wakes me up frequently. Thinking of trying for baby #2 so I would like this figured out long before baby gets here so that she doesnt feel displaced because of baby.

Honestly, I waited until DD expressed an interest in her own "big girl" bed. This meant waiting until she was 4 yrs old. She stopped nursing at night between 2-2 1/2 and I can't see that having gone well for us if I'd pushed it sooner. My DD needed and wanted me and nursing until then. And I was able to explain it to her by the time she night weaned. I am not saying this will be true for you though. Perhaps she could transition to snuggles/comfort from Dad at night? Big hugs mama!
