Hello. So intro my DD is 16 months old. We were bedsharing but I'm due in July, there is not enough room in our bed for DD and New LO (I know not sleeping next to each other). So I've been trying to transition DD to a toddler bed, I nurse her to sleep at 9 because it's so light out earlier she refuses to go to sleep. Then each night she wakes up crying at midnight, I'll go in rock her to sleep put her back and an hour later she's up crying again. After the second time no matter how long I rock her the moment I try to lay her down she instantly cries. I put her in the bed for naps, I don't know how to get her to sleep longer. I've tried not picking her up just patting her back but that makes things worse. Any advice would be appreciated.

Well she was on the mattress next to our bed and then we started packing for a move and she regressed back to our bed. So once we moved I didn't want to force her In a new room, bed, and house. But we've been here a month now. So she has been sleeping on the mattress before but not in with the frame And not in that room. We don't have room in our room for her mattress.
She loved having her own space when she did sleep in her bed. And I'm happy to report it's almost 5am and she hasn't woken up once. I guess it just took time, and patience we'll see how it goes tomorrow.
