My 12-month baby doesn't want to fall asleep in her own bed. We could do it in her rocking cot, but now it's too small, and currently we get her to sleep outside of bed, but every time she wakes up she just wants to get out of the bed. As a result she increasingly has slept in our bed instead.
The recommendations I've seen online are either for babies so small they can't stand up or toddlers. They say the child needs to learn how to relax herself to sleep. But our baby is not old enough to understand what you say, but big enough to stand and jump in her bed, which means that every time we put her to her bed, she stands up, jumps up and down and cries. This of course doesn't help her to fall asleep and I don't see how this would help her to learn to sleep on her own either.
So any recommendations on how to do this for a 12-month old baby would be appreciated.
Update: I'm fully aware that there is nothing "wrong" about her sleeping in our bed. If we could have had her sleeping in our bed, we would have. It is not an option.
