when my baby girl was born I always put her down in a bassinet by the bed. For the first4months this is how it was. I breastfed so if I had to wake up and feed, it usually ended with me falling asleep while she ate. And that part has become a habit that I have to stop since hubby is on his way home within the month.
I would say either start by putting him in a crib in your room or just put him in his own room and crib. Putting him there after he has fallen asleep could definitely help at first. But you are the only one who knows how much to let him fuss and such.
But I dont think you want to end up like a friend of mine who is just now putting her 2 and a half YEAR old in his own bed and room. Its not that I think it is wrong exactly, but I think it would take away from your marriage and what is supposed to happen in your bed as a part of that marriage. But then again, intimacy is very important to my husband and I.
