Decisions, Decisions

I'm stressed out about Claire's sleeping arrangements.  I don't think I'm ready for her to be 100% big bed.  She has slept in it every nap and night since Saturday.  However, she insists that I "sleep" (lay down) with her until she falls asleep.  It turns into an hour of her tossing and turning, copying how I'm laying then telling me to look at her, covering her up 10000 times...  I've tried not staying in there, but she screams at the top of her lungs until I go in there.  I've held out about 15 minutes.
Tonight she actually got out of bed.  Justin took her back and told her if she got out one more time, she was going to her crib.  She cried and cried and I broke down and went in.  She was sitting at the edge of the bed, scared to get out.  I felt awful, so I stayed 10 minutes until she finally fell asleep.

This morning at 5am, she fell out of bed.  She moves so much... of course the area we didn't have blocked off, she fell.  It was at the end of the bed.  She wasn't hurt, that bed is low, but she ended up coming into our room.

She also threw a fit at nap time and said she wanted to sleep in the den.  She slept here for almost two hours.  She is starting to play me and I don't like it.

I'm kinda thinking she can nap in the big bed and sleep in her crib at night?  I like them apart at nap.
What to do???

  1. Boy that sounds rough and I wish I had advice for you. We are nowhere close to transitioning Chloe out of her crib, but I imagine when the time comes, it might be rough. I hope things work themselves out quickly for you guys. Can you put her back in her crib full time for a little longer? How old is she again?
