bed time

anyone have any ideas on how I can get my daughter who will 5years old this month to sleep all night by herself? I'm having the same problem with my 18month old too, but shes slept in my bed since she was newborn and my eldest didn't start sleeping with me and her father until a month before her 1st birthday and I've gotten her to sleep by her self on and off but some how she always ends right back up in m bed....

      no I haven't though bout that and I haven't yet started potty training my youngest one yet either....but im starting to wonder if my eldest is going through like some separation anxiety thing that she doesn't want to sleep in a bed that doesn't have her daddy in it cause Flor is such a daddys girl

        If she wants to be near Daddy, could you try letting her sleep with one of his shirts? Or have a stuffed animal made out of some of his old clothes or something that really reminds her of him? Maybe the stuffed animal could serve as a reminder that Daddy (and Mommy) is nearby in the other room and loves her very much. Make it special - she can only have the animal/shirt/whatever at bedtime and ONLY in her own bed.

          well the thing is that we have a 2 bedroom apartment and my mom rents with us and so the girls share a room with me and my husband
