She doesn`t like sleeping by her self she always wants me sleeping with her

Hi Maree
i have a 3month old baby girl, she doesn`t like sleeping by her self she always wants me sleeping with her but that`s not the problem. the problem is that its very hard to put her to sleep, she would just cry and cry very loud. she always wants me to hold her and walk around with her or to move around and hit her on the bottom softy till she falls asleep. i cant do this all the time i get really tired and stressed out till she falls asleep because she take very long time till she sleeps. when i put her down i have to sleep next to her so she doesn`t wake up, i wait till shes in a deep sleep then i can go.
thanx

Answer: Hi, Your daughter simply doesn`t know how to sleep without you and I would recommend that you follow our It`s TimeTo Sleep settling program and incorporate a feed/play/sleep routine along with this so you can teach her to sleep independently. You can get details from `Your Baby`s Sleep` or www.itstimetosleep.com Cheers, Maree
