My daughter is 8 months old. She's still nursing and she still sleeps in my bed with me. Co-sleeping is starting to get extremely difficult now though because she is now crawling and climbing on everything. She constantly tries to climb over me and jump out of the bed. I feel like she needs to start sleeping in her crib for safety reasons at this point. I've tried repeatedly to put her down in her crib and she refuses to sleep there. As soon as I put her down she screams like she's in excruciating pain. I've tried letting her "cry it out", but I'm not strong enough to do it for more than 10 minutes. Even if I wait until she's in a deep sleep and then move her to her crib, it doesn't work. Some how her body senses that she's being put in her crib and she wakes up immediately and screams!! What can I do? Is it too late to get her to sleep in her crib?
