I’ve been co-sleeping with my son, now 18 months old, since birth. I am trying to transition him into his own bed because he is getting too big for my bed and “scoots” around all night now. I co-slept with my first son until he was 5. He is now in his own bed but it was still a hard transition. I CANNOT do the “cry-it-out” method. I’ve never been able to let any of my babies cry. Perhaps that’s why I co-sleep, but I just can’t. It breaks my heart to hear them cry, especially inconsolably. In his crib, I’ve noticed on the monitor. He wakes up when he begins his “scooting”. Bumping his head against the sides of the crib is what I think wakes him up. He also wakes up about once a night in search of my hair to hold. When he realizes I’m not there, he freaks out. By the time I get to his room from my room, there’s no sweet talking him back to sleep. He wants held. He wants a bottle. He wants to go to my bed. Please share any tips you have!
