Avery is 7 months. We've slept together since birth. She is so active and crawls in her sleep. She needs to be in a crib now. I put the crib in my room. She slept for awhile and is now screaming at me. I want her to just go to sleep though usually we put her to sleep in a bouncer or swing and then a few hours later she is in our bed...Idk what to do any suggestions are welcome...please..

This may sound mean, and it may annoy you if you try it but just put her in her crib and let her cry.... Your trying to break a bad habit and thats the only way she's going to learn..... My little one is 5 weeks and I never let him co sleep because this is the problem i have faced with my 5 year old.. he slept in bed with me all the time and then he never wanted to leave my bed or my room....Just put her in her crib and let her cry.. it's not going to hurt her... She'll eventually get the hint that no one is going to come pick her up....

Lol. I do not believe in CIO. Im letting her cry for 3 minutes while I'm in the same room. Then I let her back down. Letting them cry is bad for their lungs and she has breathing issues so I couldn't even if I wanted too.

That's exactly why I don't co-sleep.... I would let her cio. But I know most moms would disagree.

I finally got her to sleep, I put one of my shirts next to her.(and swaddled her we still do 90% of the time) after about hour of letting her cry for 3 minutes laying her back down over and over again I wouldn't doubt it if she sleeps all night! I'm excited

I'm not sure who told you that, but crying it out is NOT bad for their lungs.. Its actually good for them! But if she has breathing issues I would let her cry for as long as possible but without exerting her lungs so much she can't breathe.... She needs to learn that no means no and she can't have it her way anymore.I let my 5week old cry for 5 minutes or more.. Especially if I know he's exhausted because I know there's nothing more I can do for him.. Holding him doesn't work, feeding, burping, light massage.. So I let him fuss and cry until he fall's asleep
