... or 12 at which time I nurse him. Recently, when I put him back in his crib as soon as his head hits the mattress he screams! I try to console him without picking him up but it doesn't work. ... (4 replies)

... sleeping with their baby which I am sure is fine. I personally have never done it. my son is 5 months old and i laid him in his crib from day 1. First few days were rough cause we didnt wrap him tight enough, etc and also laid him on his stomach which is much better. ... (24 replies)
... That way he has his own space, but you're still next to each other for easy night feedings. Plus, it's a way for him to slowly get used to his crib, making the transition to his own room, should you want to go that route, easier. You just take one of the rails off and push it against your bed. ... (24 replies)

... e the time to get him used to something he can get attached to and that might make it easier too. You just need for your son's sake and for yours get him used to sleeping in his own bed.

... My son is 7 and a half months old. He currently sleeps with me for both naps during the day. When we put him down at night, he goes into his crib and stays there until about 11 when he wakes up and starts to cry. He does not settle down until we bring him to the bed. ... (4 replies)
... White noise is fabulous! I bought one of those cds that has the sounds of nature or something like that (no music), and we use the rushing waters one and have it running on repeat all night, and that soooo helps my kids sleep! (but we still had to CIO in order to get them to sleep.....) :) (4 replies)
... have you tried rocking him with white noise in the background? It might be the thing that helps him get into a deeper sleep so when you put him down, he can still hear that. Im not sure if it will help but I guess its worth a shot. (4 replies)
... I agree with marisuela, I had to use the CIO method. It was the only way I could get my son to sleep in his bed. I still hold him until he falls asleep, but once I put him in bed, if he wakes up, he stays in there. Now that we have transitioned to a toddler bed, this I thought, was going to be a struggle, but he's been so good, and stays asleep now. It was very hard to... (4 replies)
... h me because I miss having her in my bed. We stay up late and watch Nick at Nite and talk and we have a really strong bond. I had a harder time dealing with the transition of her going to her own bed than she ever did. I have always had a crib and bassinet, but I just can't seem to use them. ... (12 replies)
... like making sure you have plenty of room in the bed, no pillows or thick blankets getting in the way, and a cooperative spouse, there should be no problems. The transition to the crib may be difficult, at first, but can be accomplished in time. ... (14 replies)
... When we are ready, we are going to get her a youth bed, and put it right next to our bed. That way she will still be close to us, so the transition may not be as difficult. Hope that helps! ... (2 replies)
... Have you considered transitioning him to a crib another way. Perhaps a mattress on your floor, or in his room? ... (11 replies)
... I wouldn't base your paranoia on that. It's HOW the child is raised, not what sleeping arrangements are in place. ... (12 replies)

... we plan on getting her a youth bed and putting it right next to our bed, so the transition is a little easier for all of us. ... (4 replies)
... I sleep no problem with him nursing now. I am trying to get him use to the bassinett again though because we are hoping to transition him into his crib in his room by the time he is 4 months or so. He is already too big for the bassinett! He's 10 weeks tomorrow and is already around 16lbs and 25 inches long!!! ... (6 replies)
