My son, who is going to be 14 months has recently decided that he is afraid of his crib or something. I have no clue but he goes to sleep nursing right before bed....then he will wake up screaming so I go in and try to console him (even though it doesn't work and after a while of him grabbing at me and wanting to be cuddled and go back to sleep I end up picking him back up.) He did just start walking about 3 weeks ago. He will go right to sleep if I end up picking him up and cuddle him. The problem is when I go to lay him back down he wakes up as I am laying him down. I don't like CIO method and only did it for a few minutes so I could take a breather by myself. Any suggestions? I do cosleep usually half way through the night because I get tired and fall asleep with him. I don't mind picking him up and getting up with him but I would also like to teach him that he is fine and its time for bed. I don't mind cuddling him either. He just started doing this starting a couple days ago. Hes done it for about 4 days.
Have you tried a toddler bed?
have u tried white noise or rubbing on his back to console him back to sleep? i know it can be difficult to keep them asleep after rocking them
Watching this having a similar problem with our baby girl 14 months also.
I haven't tried putting him into a toddler bed. His crib converts to a toddler bed but I didn't know when to switch it. I have tried rubbing his back, telling him everything is okay, giving him an article or my clothing, etc. I have tried white noise and his machine that makes musical sounds. Nothing seems to make him want to stay in his crib.
