My dd sleeps with us. And this is what worked for me - I put her to bed in our bed, wait until shes really asleep and then sneak out. She stays asleep for 1 to 3 hours. If she wakes up i go right in and get her back to sleep right away. I started this when she was like 11 months old and now that she's 18 months she stays asleep for 3 hours or until I get into bed most of the time.
