  • That's so adorable. He obviously needs that closeness to feel safe and snug, in order to sleep. Don't deny him that. He'll grow out of it soon enough and you'll miss it

  • The only way I know how to make it stop in cry it out. I have heard several people recommend the No Cry Sleep Solution book.

  • Sounds normal. My 18 month old nurses to sleep and his big brother didn't stop until he was 2, and even then he needed me to lay down with him. They're only little for so long, it doesn't last forever.
