My son has slept in my bed since he was born for 2 reasons... one I am lazy and it was easy to just roll over and put a boob in his mouth and two.. the crib was in the attack and i didnt want to be a nag about my husband getting it down for me when he was about to deploy.(I live with my parents until the deployment is over.) and me and my stepdad do not get along well enough to ask him. So i was finally cleared by my doctor to do heavy lifting when my son was 2 months. I have the crib set up finally but he wont sleepin it!! He thinks he need to nurse himself to sleep. I finally got him to drink out of a bottle and he will drink formula but he wont sleep alone for longer than 5 minutes!! I would love to have him in his bed by the time daddy comes home for a visit in august. He wont keep a passie in his mouth all night and when it falls out he wakes up and i have tried to prop up a bottle but he finishes it and wakes up i have put him in his bed and let him cry that lasted an hour and a half i have even taken the shirt off my back and put it on a teddy in his crib but that dont work either does anyone have any more ideas??? I am going crazy sleeping on my side all night. I havent slept on my stomach in almost a year. PLEASE HELP!!!!
