Years ago, when my son was about 8-10 months old, he went through a similar period of time. A friend gave me an article from a parenting magazine that gave the following basic procedures for getting your baby to sleep alone, through the night, and in his/her own crib. This also works when a baby awakes in the middle of the night and does not need a diaper change or a feeding. It takes roughly 3-5 nights, so be prepared. Put your child down in the crib after your nightly routine, say good night, and leave the room. If/when the baby starts to cry, WAIT 5 minutes before going into the room. Then go in, reassure the baby that he's fine, tell him to go back to sleep, and LEAVE. Do not pick him up!!!!!!!!!! Repeat this procedure 3 times, waiting five minutes each time before returning to the baby's room. Then, increase the amount of time you wait before reentering your child's room to 10 minutes. Repeat 3 times and increase the interval to 15 minutes. Repeat 3 times and increase the interval to 20 minutes, then to 25 minutes, and finally to 30 minutes. The second night, begin the intervals at 10 minutes, the third night begin the intervals at 15 minutes, and so on. IT DOES WORK!!!!!!!!!! I've told friends about this over the years, and everyone of them has had positive results. It takes several nights, so be prepared...Good luck!
