Idk if you've tried this but it might help to put her in her crib and just let her cry it out. That might work. Worth a try. I know the crying is hard but she's safe in her crib. After doing this a few time the crying will happen less and less. Also at 7 months that's when I put my oldest in her crib because she wanted more room to sleep. She was moving around a lot more. I started with a play pen next to my bed and after she was okay with that moved her to her crib

Yes because baby will feel abandoned and will eventually give up.  Sad.

Do not do CIO, it's cruel.  I hold my daughter in my arms to sleep, she only nurses to sleep when she wakes up in the middle of the night.

Look lady I was trying to help. This site is so dumb. People ask for advice and people are rude about it. If you don't want advice don't ask for it. Its not cruel. There are thousands of studies on it. Its worked with both my kids and they are VERY loved and are VERY loving they don't know the difference. Your baby obviously doesn't want to sleep next to you if he's rolling around. He needs his sleep and he will sleep a lot better if he can move around. I slept with my first for 7 months until SHE was ready to go to her own crib. Its scary at first but she caught on real fast and she got a great nights sleep

Actually, studies show it damages baby.  Not being rude to you, sharing facts. :) 

Oh and *I* didn't ask for advice.....

The last 2 words in your post..."any advice!" That would be asking. This is an advice website. All you have to do is take it or leave it. We all do things differently.

Will she fall asleep if you hold her and nurse her on your lap?

I am not the original poster.....I quoted you to point out your horrible CIO advice. I've never had issues with any of my five children sleeping and never used CIO either. .
