My 9 month old is still not sleeping through the night. We moved in with my mom when he was 4 weeks old and didn't have a crib for him. So I decided that we would sleep in the same bed; being a single mom and breast feeding it just made sense. I enjoy sleeping in the same bed with my son and he seems to sleep easier as well. However now we have begun to cut back on breastfeeding and I would like to get him to sleep in his own bed because I feel that he would probably sleep all through the night without me moving around and waking him up. He now wakes up 3 to 4 times a night and I breast feed him back to sleep. The only advice I have gotten is to just let him cry it out in his crib till he falls asleep. This is to stressful for him, he stands and cries for so long and I just end up going in and getting him. If any one has some advice that would wonderful or even someone going through something similar.
