I want him out my bed... I THINK ..

my LO is 4months old. He has his own crib in my room. He is EBF. He will maybe take a couple of naps in his crib through the day, but at night, its tiring to even try to get him to stay in the crib. He wakes up to comfort nurse like 7xs during the night. He doesn't want a pacifier, he wants to latch, and that's how he sleeps. I usually just leave one breast out and he latches when he wants. When he was younger he would have no problem staying in the crib for about 6hrs. Well now hes at the point where he's rolling all over my bed, leaving me on the edge!. I tried to put him in his crib last night but he screamed everytime he woke up. He woke up more often than usual. after literally the 12th time he woke up and I had to get him, I said screw it and brought him back to bed. He latched and went back to sleep. I have no idea how to transition him back to his bed especially with the constant nursing/comfort sucking. or even if its even worth it to try.

Just keep doing what you're doing. Eventually he'll get used to it.

At four months, it's really early to expect anything buyt what you're seeing. Keep doing what you're doing.

Death, taxes, never sleeping a full night again.... the price of parenthood!

My DD was the same way. Now almost six months and usually sleeps w/ me for first few hours and after first feeding goes to the crib. He will transition when ready!

Yeah, i know what you mean. My 3 month old is in our bed since day one, no plans on transitioning to her pwn bed, but my 3 yr old still climbs in our bed. I have given up fot now. I choose sleep over him being in his own bed. I have been fighting a cold too, so i understand what you mean.

You take off the front panel of the crib so it is open on one side and push the open side up next to your mattress. Baby can roll to mama, but has his own space too.

I think there's also a way to attach the crib to the bed for more security
