  • Have you tried staying in his room with him? If he's in a toddler you lay with him? Sing to him?

    Those are the only thoughts I have if you don't want him to cry it out.

  • Well thats a lesson learned! I did the same thing for awyle and i learned real quick not to start something that i will have to fix later. What i did is i would just sit with my son, read him a book, or sing to him... then tell him goodnight and put him into his crib.

    He might cry but i would say most of the times that my son cried it was only for about 10 mins untill he fell asleep.

  • I do the same. I also move my kids to a bed next to mine at around 2 and then to their own room at three. So far, we've never had a problem. In the begining they would crawl back into my bed but they always get used to it after a few days. There is no need for CIO, I've never used it and never had a problem. WIth my youngest we used the book the No Cry Sleep Solution to help with his sleep as he took longer to sleep through than the rest and I have a baby coming soon, you may want to try that. It took only a week and a half before I got the results I wanted. It helps with any sleep issues you may have. Good luck!
