Quoting Jessica Caylee:" I don't do the cry-it-out method whatsoever but my child definitely just gave me a run for my money. ... [snip!] ... one suggestion. Or sleep in her room. It gives them more security knowing your not so far away. Even if that's a room away."
She doesn't care if I'm there or not, she wants to be like on top of me. We had her pack n play in our bedroom until like last week, she REFUSED to sleep in it. Last night was a fight, for sure. Once again didn't get to bed until 4 AM =/ She slept by herself in her crib for about 4 hours though. Jonathan is the one who actually got her to sleep though. She would lay in her crib while I rubbed her head and sang to her for 2 minutes, then I would hold her and walk around with her for a few but she would start clawing at my face =/ When Jonathan walked around with her though, she just went to sleep without fighting. When I hold her, she gets pissed half the time and tries to rip my face off. I feel like she only does it to me because that's not how she likes me to put her to sleep. Either way, it's incredibly frustrating.
A new bed for us definitely isn't an option, we just bought a brand new bed in March that wasn't cheap.
