Hey that's such great news. I'm sure too that you're on the right track! Keep up the good work, be ready for possible setbacks (knock on wood for them not to show) and remember this might take up to 3 weeks. You'll know when is time to start moving your matress away from her bed. Wishing you long and rested nights! :-*

P.S. what a lovely and beautiful girl you have! she looks like a Rafaello's angel!

 :)Hi everyone!
Firstly I apologize for not answering earlier!! I've been waiting to give you a 100% positive answer on the mattress method. But the truth is I've been cheating!!   ::)and the mattress is still in Luna's room!!! :: :o
The story so far:
I had ordered a big bed for Luna that supposedly was going to arrive at the end of March but still has not happened, so the plan was to take out the mattress then!In the meantime I still stay with her until she goes to sleep, the problem is I'm sooooooooo tired that I end up sleeping there too! Only that most nights when I wake up I go to my bed and Luna stays in her cot until morning. I also have to say that this is not the case every night as she still sometimes wakes up when falling or nightmare and she comes to our bed! ::)However it is much much better than when I started this post! ;D
The bid dilemma I'm facing now is what do I do when the big bed finally comes! :o Do I remove the mattress completely (in fact i won't have much room) do I put a chair instead? Do I still stay until she sleeps and then leave? ???
I've just finished reading BW for toddlers and one of the stories tells you about the mattress method, where it explains in detail how it started but then just says "after a few months the parents finally return to their bed" but how was the last stage??
I hope this hasn't been too long, I'm sure this method works it just that I have been doing it wrong! ???
Any advise is happily accepted! :)
