For the past 6 or so months, I have been putting my 16 month old in his crib while I take a shower in the morning. He's already been fed breakfast and has had time to play, and actually I time it right before he's going to take his morning nap, so while he's asleep, I can finish getting ready. Well he has screamed and cried the whole time I'm in the shower, since day 1! 6 months later he is still crying the entire time. Today he was actually kicking his crib so hard that I had to get out and make sure he was okay or that he didn't break the crib. I am a SAHM and my fiance works 9-5 or 9-9 most days and has to leave early for work, so getting up early is not an option because I would be dead all day if I did. I have tried bringing my son in there with me, but it usually results in him crying to be held the whole time, or trying to get out of the shower. His crib is the only safe place for him to be while I'm in there. And just so everyone knows, he does NOT sleep in his crib...never has. He still sleeps with me in the bed. So he's not associated his crib with going to sleep. What can I do to get this to stop?!

I used to take my son in the bathroom with me but now that he is three and learning privacy I wait at night after he falls asleep around 8 .
