How about letting her sleep in your bed Inbetween yourself and dh? There are many benefits to bubs development (trust, independence). I only do this when my 3 yr old hops in during the night or when my 15m old is really unsettled.
At first it was uncomfortable but eventually very cozy!

I would buy her a double bed and put up a good safety rail, go to sleep next to her and sneak out during the night.

My husband will not let me sleep in our bed with her. He flat out refuses.
I don't really have the money to buy a double bed or mattress.
Will just have to persevere I guess.
We are off to the drs this week for her needles so ill get a referral then.
My mum is watching the kids for me Wednesday night so she will have a go, maybe it's just me lol

Keep your eye out on your local buy swap sell website, often people have bargain beds on there.

Our DS co slept with us until he was 16months old. I know how your feeling. Your DD might be to young (I'm not sure) but the only way we got DS out of sleeping with us. Was putting him in a toddler bed in his room, we had to lay on the floor next to him for about a week until he went to sleep & then left the room when he was fast asleep.

I wish it was that simple it's just something he won't agree too. Although the bed would be much safer than the couch lol
DD is 12 months old.
I have good news, she's napping in the cot right now been in there since 1:20pm. Small victory right now, now to just figure out how to do it at night time.
Was thinking of giving her water after her last milk bottle, when she wakes during the night?

It is awful hearing hubs cry, but 10 minutes can seem like 10 hours.
What do you do when she wakes in the night to settle her?
27-05-2013 22:14 #29
Longest I've left her is maybe 6-7 mins.
She usually has milk but I don't want to keep it up anymore.
I was actually able to put her down in the cot tonight, she slept in there for about 40mins and is now crying...

Woohoo for her sleeping in the cot! That's a step forward. Doesn't matter if its only a little sleep!
The key I've found that works is consistency. So if she had her afternoon nap in there happily today, do that again tomorrow and going forward.
Then next week, push for two naps in there a day.
And in no time, she'll be happy in her own private little space!
I was going to ask, does she have a mobile hanging over it or a musical one? If not, that might make her feel a little bit more serene in there, and if nothing else distracted for a while.
Whenever my baby ds gets a upset, i wave his mobile around and he's just mesmerized and then drifts off.
