my son is 12 months old. we co-slept until 6 months when we all stopped sleeping, he would play and fidget for hours, he stopped falling asleep while nursing at this age as well, no matter what i do.. rocking, soft music, dark, singing, NOTHING! DH and i would LOVE for him to co-sleep again but he refuses. he started sleeping in the crib and did very well. the last 2 months he cries himself to sleep, not screaming. i am not a CIO fan, i have sat in there with him for hours, rubbing, singing reading...
he will not go to sleep now unless i let him "whine" (it's not a full blown cry) for about 5 minutes. then he is out. if he starts getting loud i will go in and he smiles at me. i think he enjoys yelling.
i HATE this. i feel terrible. i could rock him for hours and he will not sleep. he won't even fall asleep in the car anymore.
please help. we are about to visit family for 2 weeks and i don't want to do this anymore.
