We had a similar issue except our son never slept alone in his crib until he was 18 months old. We paid for a sleep training service which we found very helpful. The basic idea was pat his back for five mins leave him alone 5 mins pat his back again and make sure he is laying down not standing up and every so often if he is really fussy we would pick him up and calm him down. This could go on over an hour but eventually he started to like the crib and would sleep without crying so much and by 20 months he was sleeping with us just saying good night and leaving the room. Weaning him from your arms is a really good idea! You will get passed this! don’t worry!
