I co-sleep from birth and my 19.5 month old still sleeps with me because we're nursing still.

Bump!

What do you do to get him back in his crib? Do you take him out of the crib and out of the room? Maybe thats why he doesnt want to go back in his crib

I would say instead of picking him up, just let him lay there and soothe him while he is laying down. Then leave the room for a little bit. If he starts back up, do the same thing. It lets him know that he has to sleep in the crib, but that you will always be there if he needs you. It might take a couple of nights, but he will eventually get it.

I usually change baby and night and put them back to bed. I try not to turn on lights or speak much so they don't completely wake up.

I did the same thing before my daughter started sleeping through the night.. i learned talking means the baby thinks its wake up time... and before u know it hours passed... ur still up with the baby & beyond tired.

Cosleeper here but here's a bump! Of course, we started cosleeping because DS wouldn't sleep in his crib for longer than 10 mins before waking up and crying. Even now, he uses his crib as a playpen. I can sometimes get him to nap in his crib but rarely.

Well, I'm an advocate for co-sleeping so I would say let him sleep with you. Obviously, he needs that comfort at night. But if you definitely need him in his crib, I'd bring the crib into your room and put it right next to your bed. That way, he knows you are there but he is still in his own bed.

This is what I always did and changed him right in the crib so I didn't have to lift him. I also am one to do CIO
