My son is one and currently he sleeps in his own bed right next to our bed. I've tried putting him in his crib in his own room but he flips out and will scream his head off for a good 30 min, sometimes longer. Once he's quieted down and I check on him, if he sees me, it starts all over. I've let him cry it out a few times but I really don't like this method, just seems so traumatizing. I also want him to know that I am here for him when he needs me and I'm not sure ignoring him when he cries is the best method.
So how can I convince him to sleep in his room when his crying starts as soon as he's near his crib and realizes he's about to go in there...? What are some non-crying options or methods? What has worked for you?
