After seeing what happened with my sisters children I from day one tried to get my son to sleep in his crib. Now at 11 months that is where he sleeps for naps and bedtime, all night, thank goodness. The first two weeks he slept in bed with us, and the bouncy chair for naps. But I again tried and tried, and got him to sleep in the crib. It started out half the time in the crib, then the rest in bed with us. By the time he was three months old he was in the crib all the time. Now when he gets sleepy I lay him in his crib and walk out of the room, and he puts himself to sleep. It is not easy, but easier done now, rather then later. I wish you well. Also we have his crib in our bedroom, and I think that helps a lot.
