well my son is about 1 and a half months and have been sleeping in the same bed with me ever since he got sick with the cold witch was a couple weeks ago. Now he don't want to sleep by himself he either will sleep in the swing or wants Mommy's body warmth. I was hoping that you all have any real advice on how to get him to sleep by himself.....PLEASE HELP?!?!?!?!?!

He is still tiny enough to be swaddled tightly. Have you tried?

Try putting his basinett or bed beside yours so you can pet him if he wakes up or until he goes to sleep. Pet him less and less. At a  month and a half, some advise to let the baby sleep with Mom, but I found this didn't work for me.

Try filling an old sock with rice and warming it up in the microwave. When you lay him down, lay it next to him. The warmth might help comfort him.
