So, I didn't have this problem with my first son (and I thought it got easier the more kids you have)....but I guess not. I cannot get my (almost) 5 month old to fall asleep on his own in his crib. He used fall asleep when I wound up his mobile when he was 2 and 3 months old...I don't know what changed.
I've let him cry for over an hour and he won't stop unless I pick him up. Once I pick him up he stops crying and is out like a light within seconds. He will always fall asleep if we put him in his carseat or if we rock/bounce him, but I don't always have time to do this. Is this just a phase or am I doing something wrong?
Other than this he's a good baby...rarely fusses, is content when he's alone, etc.
