Maybe you've tried this already but perhaps, after she has fallen asleep in your bed you can move her into her own cot??
: Maddison is five months old, and she sleeps from 9pm till around 5.30am. The problem is after she has her 5.30am bottle, she'll either decide it's time to play, or else won't go back down in her cot and will only fall back asleep if she's in my bed. Occasionally she'll wake up earlier, at 1.30am or 3.30am, and won't go back to sleep until she's in my bed again (she doesnt have a bottle if she wakes up at these times). I can't bring myself to let her cry it out, as she gets really short of breath and can't even cry when it reaches that stage (wheezes and gets a really weird high pitched noise, hard to explain). I really don't like sharing my bed with her, but how can I get her back into her cot after her morning feed, because it's driving me crazy?!?!
