Sleeping Charming

My son is 10 months, and due to unforeseen circumstances he’s been sleeping in my bed with me since he was 3 months. Now we’re finally in a better situation again and I’m going to try the big shift to the crib. I need some pointers and suggestions for things that have worked for other moms in making it an easier transition than I fear it’s going to be. No cry it out method though. Thank you.

We are doing a slow transition that’s worked for us in the past. We finally got a crib and kept one side off and sandwiched it between our bed and the wall as a cosleeper. So she’s still with us but has her own designated space. Then in a few months after she’s adjusted to “okay this is my area now” we’ll put the other side of the crib on and separate our sleeping spaces entirely. Although that may come sooner than a few months, she’s almost there now. She was good with it until this 6 month regression hit. But that’s what I did when I raised my nephew (I also bedshared with him) and it worked wonders.

Both mine slept with me until I stopped feeding around 1 yr. I did cry it out but in short stints literally put them into cot left for a minute then 2 then 3. Only left them about 3 mins max just kept going in and saying mummy’s here go to sleep. Took my girl 5 nights took my boy 3 I think.

Start with nap time first, if he can learn to sleep in the crib at nap time then it'll make it easier at bedtime.

You could start with a pack n play in your room and then when he’s consistently sleeping in that move to the crib. Or put a bed in the nursery and sleep next to him while he’s in the crib

The pack n play suggestion next to my side of the bed (in addition to noise machine) is exactly what we did to start, and our little guy transitioned to his crib no problem after a month.
