I am asking for help as I am very exhausted. My baby only sleeps in my arms and I cannot really sleep.
I mean I want to care for my child but since I do not sleep myself i cannot support her the way I wish.
Can anyone help me how to train a child to sleep in a bed?
Generell sleep advice is also welcome!!!

Hi @InaMinnesota and welcome to our online community!
I'm sorry to hear that you are so exhausted and having trouble getting your baby to sleep in their bed. That sounds like such a difficult situation to be managing right now. Do you mind me asking what kind of supports you have around you right now?
I can hear just how overwhelmed and exhausted you are right now, so I am just wondering whether you have a trusted GP or someone that you feel comfortable talking to about this?
While it is an Australian website, The Raising Children's Network has an article on Sleep and Settling which might be able to give you a couple of ideas on what you can do next.
I just want to remind you that you're not alone and we're all here for you.
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
