Will only sleep in her bed Lock Rss

Were having trouble getting our 16 1/2 month old to sleep in a portacot or any other strange bed. We have a holiday home and a proper cot set up there and she refuses to sleep in it. We end up having to have her in our bed which never happens at home and she keeps us awake all night. Its got to the point that we don't want to go away and holidays are becoming a nightmare. What do you suggest?
Hi,

No one wants to make battle out of the holiday but you might need to take charge and persist with some controlled comforting techniques (see <a href="http://www.huggies.com/au/pregnancy_parenting/yourbabysleep/">Your Baby’s Sleep</a> section). Since she is still in a cot you can still do the 6 to 12 months settling techniques. It will be worth it in the long run as you can all enjoy your holiday.

Best of luck, Maree
