So since we are settled into our new house I am planning on transitioning DS into his crib. Really sad about ending co sleeping but it is what is best for our family. I enjoyed those 9 months of co sleeping! But I think it's time he gets his own bed. I plan on blowing up the air mattress and putting it in his room and then at bed time I will follow his regular routine but all in his new room, then nurse him and put him into the crib and sleep on the air mattress in his room. That way ill be right there if he wakes up, ya know? I'm nervous for some reason. How did you transition your infant from co sleeping?

I wouldn't do the air mattress because when he wakes up he will want to sleep with you

When I transitioned DD I would get up bring her into my bed nurse her and then put her back in her own bed. She was waking up about twice a night then so it wasn't that bad at 9 months he is probably sleeping through or close to it so I would skip the air mattress.

U dont have to let him cry.... U get up and go to his room. If u sleep in it u will end up putting him in bed with u trust me.

Okay he sleeps through the night for the most part but I thought he might wake up more if he's in a new bed
