hi all, any idea how to let baby sleep on their own bed during nite time??
my gal was ok to sleep in her own bed during the day time but once nite time comes, she will cry once i put her in or maybe she sleep for a few minute then cry n dont want to be put back if i try to put her in again..
Probably coz it's dark and well, it's scary for a baby when it's pitch black. Maybe you can try putting in some lullabies as well as a night light.
My daughter also refuses cot, she likes to share our bed

Baby Refuses Crib Sleeping? Here's What To Do!
my #1 used to have this prob like urs too when he's 2 mths old. When my mother in law starts intro him the yaolan, he refused to sleep in his cot @ nite..
So like what other mummies mentioned. I tried to carry him to sleep till he really fall into deep sleep, thats about 30 mins already. Then i tried to place him on his cot.
But he starts crying badly when his butt touches the bed. So I quickly carry him him again and rock him to sleep. I just kp trying and trying and donno how many times, he finally get to sleep.. need alot of patience really...
Everytime before baby sleep, try to tok to them.Telling them its time to sleep and its more comfortable to sleep in your cot. Everytime, your baby sleep. Praise them at their ear softly.
I tried this for weeks before my #1 can adapt to his cot. Guess it somehow work in a way but need a lot of patience.
You can tried this way. Or worse to worse, if after weeks of trying, it still dont work then you may wanna try a yaolan??? Heard some baby sleep well in yaolan. Cos it provides them with security. Its like being cuddle by mummy.
Hope it works for you!

best thing is if i catch the way or stlye to make her sleep, she will change it after 2-3days therefore, i need to find out again which is the way she comfortable to sleep with again. and this is so tiring...
