My DS was the same way. Unfortunately I never found anything that helped. He eventually just grew out of it.

My son was the same. I added some cushioning to his bed, a few blankets under him and put one of my shirts over it so it wasn't hard, and cold, and it smelled like me. Other than that nothing really helped besides him sleeping in his swing.

so you have a swing? that works well for my son, he's a booby monster too. We do co-sleep at night though.

We had that problem for a while when DS was small. Where do you put her when you put her down? I would cuddle him in our bed and wrap him up close to me so he would still feel me and hear my heart beat. Once I got him to sleep next to me we were eventually (thankfully) able to move him to his crib. I know it isn't easy and it's exhausting, it will take some time even if you can get her to sleep out of your arms for 10 minutes that's success. Good luck! Also as another poster said put some padding in her bed, those things get cold and are quiet hard.
