  • You are going to have to deal with the crying. Put him in his crib with a small soft toy, use a night light, and leave him for 20 minutes. Check on him if he hasn't stopped crying, and make sure he's ok, then go out for another 20. Make sure he is sleepy. You might have to adjust naps during the day to allow for this. After a couple of days or so he won't cry as much, but it will take some time. Its something you have to endure. Go outside for a few minutes if the crying gets to you.
