My son is 11 months old and he sleeps with me at night and during the day he will usually nap on the couch but now it's at the point I have to hold him on the couch while he sleeps or he will wake up screaming the second I try to put him down and thats starting to play on my nevres. I can't get anything done. So my question is how do I get him to sleep in the crib? Ive tried putting him in it and sitting in the rocker next to him but he just cries untill I pick him up. Please help!
Get things done while he is awake or wear him in a sling while he naps to get things done. What I do with my grandson is hold him on my lap and we watch music videos on the computer for him to fall asleep. Then I hold him and can compute. With my own kids I nursed them to sleep and rested, read, or watched TV.
You don't have to and never should let a child cry it out. How horrible! Children are only small for awhile and there is no reason a child can't be held for naps. It's okay to never use a crib. I never even owned one and I had 3 kids and my 18 mo grandson doesn't have one. Holding a child isn't to make sure they are okay. It's because human babies and toddlers are supposed to be close to others when they sleep.
