From co-sleeping to crib.

My baby, my husband and I have been co-sleeping with our baby (I know some people don’t like it, but that was mostly my decision) we got him a bassinet but he was not into it, he wakes up fast and he still loves falling asleep attached to my nipple. Now that he’s 6 months we got him a crib that we put on our room but we tried tonight to put him there but still wakes up! I gave up tonight after a few tries but I really need my bed back! I want to sleep under my sheets and it just so much harder for him and for me to sleep because of the lack of space. Anyone that has been through this? Any tips for the transition? I’m getting hopeless about it.

I just want to add that I still have my daughter sleeping with us she’s almost 4 reason is she sleeps horribly without warmth comfort of someone even me I’m grown adult so if you don’t want to don’t have to we like our children sleeping with us because he was adopted did that with his father and I never had close family. But I raised her trying to detach her from me getting her to sleep but that would cause me to lack sleep from constant getting up checking on her and me sleeping uncomfortably alone my daughter also takes my husbands shirts because smells like him (daddy’s girl)

This has been a struggle for me. My son is 10 months and he despises his crib. He could be out for the count and as soon as I lay him in his crib...he starts to cry. If I lay him in my bed he's fine. He still wakes up multiple times at night to nurse (even though I feel it's more like I'm a pacifier). Half of me enjoys my little snuggles and the other half would like my bed back.

You literally described my exact situation! We co spelt with my daughter until she was 6 months then I needed my bed back. I didn’t want to let her cry it out so I looked up sleep methods for weeks before the transition we tried EVERYTHING on the internet and nothing was working after 3 long weeks of failing. We finally decided we needed to let her cry it out. The first night she cried for an hour before she went to sleep and so far that has been the hardest thing I’ve had to do as a mom. I would put her down and come to my room look at the baby cam and just would cry my eyes out! But after a week she LOVED her crib! In just two weeks she started sleeping through the night and until this day she never cries at bed time and sleeps through the night. I now how a 3 month old that co sleeps with us sometimes but when he’s 6 months we’re doing it all over again like we did with his sister.

We co-slept for 3 months, we put my son’s crib close to our bed now. He falls asleep on my chest after eating, I wait till he is asleep, then transfer him to his crib. Every night is different though, last night he woke up 6 times within an hour - that was at 3am, on the 7th I gave up and he slept on my chest. I try to do my best and follow my rule of putting him to the crib to sleep as much as I can. So I feel you, I wish your transition will grow easier soon, don’t give up, it’s better for your child to sleep separately, hug
