How can I get my 3 month old to sleep on his crib? I have tried but he does not and end up going to bed with me. I am scared because of SIDS and I do NOT sleep the whole night because I am scared of this. What can  I do so my baby can sleep and on his crib. Do you think is too late to put him on his crib

Put him in the crib. No pillow, toys, or bumper. If it's chilly, put him in warm pajamas. There are wedges you can buy, and even monitors that will go off if he doesn't move.

Try side carring your crib. You can take off the side of the crib that goes up & down, push the crib against your bed so the mattresses are level. That way he's sleeping right next to you but not in bed with you. It's ok to co-sleep too. When it's done safely it can prevent SIDS. Google safe co-sleeping & you can look on You Tube on how to side car your crib.

This.  If he cries, go and check on him periodically (like every 15 minutes to make sure he is okay), but do not pick him up.

CO sleeping safely can prevent sids. He wants to be near you and that is perfectly okay. We co sleep for 6 months and then they sleep in their bassinets. No crying involved.  

Please don't follow the advice of letting him cry for 15 minutes and not picking him up.  A lot of research shows that is not good for babies.

3 months is way too young for CIO.  In fact, cry it out is no longer recommended because of the negative effects on babies.

If you think that I am giving bad advice, please stop giving DANGEROUS advice.

The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development advises AGAINST co-sleeping.  Link

The CDC advises AGAINST co-sleeping.  Link

Current news article with statistics showing INCREASE in SIDS.  Link

I hope that someone on here does not lose their child because they read, "I did it and my baby was fine."

CIO does not lead to DEATH.

If you insist on getting the baby to sleep in his crib then you can try putting the baby in there for naps so that the baby can get used to it. You can also get the little baby bed that goes in your bed. That way you want roll over the baby

I said safely. There are numerous ways to co sleep safely. In fact, more babies die in cribs than co sleeping safely with their parents.
SIDS is when there is no explaination for baby's death. That means baby just stop breathing. SIDS is not caused by co sleeping.
