i had the same prob cause i had put him in my bed but the best way is to let him fall to sleep down stairs first then take him bed when you now he is sleeping x

ive really tried and the other night he was crying solidly for a hour with no signs of giving up, tried everything, bath then bed, story then bed, nothing has worked he was in a routine then he fell poorly and now i cant get him back in one! kinda frustrating

My sons still in his crib but i will be swopping to his cot next month. However, have had friends and they did the crying technick (oops spelling was bad before pregnanacy but with baby brain 10 times worse). It might be worse a try.



Anyway basically, start off put him in his cot and maybe sit in the room for 10 mins to start off with, then leave the room for 2 mins, then 5 mins and build it up etc..etc..



BE STRONG,, it wont happen over night and will most likely have to repeat this cycles for many days but will be worth it in the long run. Im routing for ya,,, Good Luck
