  • You can try reading the "no cry sleep solution" or "healthy sleep habits, happy baby". :) It could be a phase though, I don't know. We co slept lol.

  • Well the only way you will get him out of your bed, is to get him out of your bed. Some babies will do ok with a slow transition, but others won't. It's not going to be easy on you, but consistancy is the key.

  • i think that he does not like to be alone and your bringing him to bed will not help unless you want him in your bed for years. I would have to say to get up rock him and put him back in his crib. you could also try putting baby music on for him to calm him down. my daughter did not like her crib and i would set her in her car seat and rock her and then when she went back to sleep i would put her back in her crib.

  • maybe having some quiet play time in the crib during the day, a few times a day, might get him to like his crib more
