Anyways, we use to just hold her to sleep when she was under 1. Then around 1 year she would sleep in our bed with us. She’s a high energy baby so while we lay in bed she’ll be playing with the blankets, jumping on my stomach, etc. until she tires herself out which could take anywhere from 30 min to an hour. Once she’s tired we move her to her crib.
Since 18 months, now we lay on the floor with her in her bedroom next to her bed. Pretty much does the same as above and will eventually sleep after 30 mins to an hour. I’ve tried making her stay in her bed while I lay on the floor beside her, but she always comes down and wants to lay beside me.
