  • sometime crying is what is needed. Eventually they stop and go to sleep but continue every night and eventually it will be natural for him!

  • There's a great article on drjaygordon.com on how to transition baby from the family bed without the drama of crying. Search the site for "sleep."

    (I found that leaving mine to cry did NOT help...some kids are stubborn!)
