So my wife has started to try something new with her. She will put her in our bed to get her to go to sleep. If that doesn't work she will bounce her or go into the bathroom and hold her while the shower runs. I guess my daughter likes the sound of running water, it helps sooth her. Only there is an issue is when I get to bed they are both sound a sleep. I don't want to wake my daughter trying to move her because she is not a sound sleeper, so I leave her there for a while. Eventually I also fall a sleep and she sleeps in our bed all night. Now I can't get her to sleep in her room and now I can't sleep.
Whoever thinks putting your toddler in bed with you is a good idea, watch out they won't go back to their own bed. They get too comfortable sleeping with mom and dad that they don't want to be alone. My daughter is restless and is wild while she sleeps which makes my sleep awful. I will say my daughter is sweet when she wakes up. She wakes me up with an I love you or hey daddy as she puts her face right in mine. Not a bad way to wake up in the morning, but I have to get her used to sleeping back in her own bed. Somehow, some way, and some time soon.
