My son NEVER wants to go to sleep anymore!

My son really fights sleep. He's turning 1 in a few weeks and it's hell trying to put him down for his nap and to bed at night. I feel bad, but I've been just leaving him in his crib. He cries for like 10-15 minutes and then goes to sleep. I feel really terrible about it, but otherwise he's up for hours more and he's soooo cranky!! Does anyone else use this method? Am I doing ok?

  • Oh Momma, you must be exhausted too. There is nothing wrong with letting your sweetie cry it out. This won't last forever. Rest when you can.
