Sometimes they need something to listen too like music. Your child might not like the dark u should give them a night light. Or they don't want to be alone u should talk to your child telling he or she what time it is bed time of course reassure them that u are there hope that helps :)
Find her something, music etc. that she just loves. Make the room hers & only sleeping takes place there. We struggled until our doctor told us to put our daughter there & leave her. After a couple of days, it was great & she slept through the night! Just be strong, it sucks to hear her cry but you all will be better good luck
You just have to put her in her bed & leave her. If she cries just let her. Do not go in there to check on her. She will eventually calm down & go to sleep. It may take a few nights of crying but eventually she will figure out that even if she cries she has to stay.
If she is crawling out & coming out of the room keep putting her back in the bed & leave the room. Don't say anything to her when you do it. Pick her up put her back in bed & leave the room. It may take a few times of this & it may take 20 times, but do not give in or she will know she can run the show. Stick with it & she will realize she has to sleep in her bed no matter what. It may rake a few days, but she will give in. I know IRS hard to hear them cry & not go to them, but if you will do this consistently it will work.
Here is another idea...why don't you see about getting one of those sling wraps, they go around your shoulder and hold your youngster against your chest...leaves your arms relatively free... There is a lot of research now suggesting that children really thrive from LOTS of holding... They even make them where the child can ride on your back.
My tendency, for as much as you can manage, would be to give her the soothing body contact until the child feels ready to sleep on her own...
