My daughter is now 6 months old and has been co-sleeping w/me since birth. My question is how long should I allow her to cosleep and how am I going to switch her to her crib when it comes time to do so? I currently have the book "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Baby". I just can't bring myself to let her "cry it out", trust me I've tried, breaks my heart. My daughter doesn't seem to want to "self soothe" herself back to sleep, the crying just increases. She takes 3-4 good naps during the day and is a healthy eater. She also doesn't sleep thru the night yet. Co-sleeping has been the only way I can get any sleep so far and helps my daughter sleep longer too.
