So my son is 18 months old and although he is still teething (only has three teeth) and has been suffering with that since he was 3 months old, we still don't get the sleep we would like. He starts out in his crib and there are nights where he will sleep until at least 5am in there which are awesome nights for us, but other nights where he will get up crying at 1am or 2am and then we transfer him to our bed. (yes i know not the right thing to do) but we always take him back to his crib). The thing is that he continues to sleep til 7am or 7:30am when we all wake up but we would love to see him sleep all night til the morning in his crib. He has never liked his crib but the comfort we have is that at least the first half of the night he's there, he shares his room with my 5 year old daughter so that doesn't help because although she sleeps all night, they both tend to wake each other up when they have nightmares or are sick.
We still do rock him to sleep but in all honesty not really, he falls asleep on his own on my lap and then we take him to his crib. My husband keeps telling me that he will get there because my daughter was like that the only difference we didn't take her out of her crib constantly but she did wake up a few times a night when she was his age. The pediatrician told us that basically he would outgrow this when he would get to Sammy's age and that some children are just like that but it would be nice if he started sleeping all night.
