How do I get my 1 month old to sleep in her crib? My husband has her used to being held 24/7.
i don't know, but i'm sort of in the same situation. we bed share, but my 1 month old cries unless i'm holding him. has to be me...no one else can calm him. i literally hold him all day long. i'm in the bathroom right now & the poor thing is screaming his head off.
Have you tried one of those little baby rockers that vibrate.
It may sound like a "bad mommy" thing,but,I put her in her carseat (un buckled),put it on my bed and she seems to be sleeping soundly. Theres just gotta be a better way,but, if this works for now,great bc mama is tired.

Why not just co-sleep and then wear her during naps? Get a sling, a moby wrap, or some other carrier suitable for such a young baby and keep her close. She won't need it forever and you can sleep train her when she gets older, but for now, she may just need that contact.
That said, has something changed where your husband can no longer hold her as often?
with my boys I put them in their swing and they slept threw the whole night
I think its a normal thing, they want to be close to someone, use a sling or other type of carrier during the day and stay with the baby till she falls asleep, co sleeping or room sharing is ideal if possible
This is normal. She was inside you for how long? Hold her. She will learn to be independent, but you can't spoil her by holding her.
