Ok. So I have really dug a hole for myself. Ever since my son was born (11 months ago) he has been sleeping with me. And for the longest time I liked it and didnt want him in his crib. I liked cuddling and his little baby arms holding me, but lately he has becoming more and more dependant on it. I am pregnant and could go into labor anytime now and I don't have time to lie down with him for hours during the day for naps and I dont have the patience to lie down with him for an hr at night for bed. So my question is how do I go about making him sleep in his crib? I don't know how long I should let him cry for. He would literally cry for hours if I let him but I dont want him getting stressed out of feeling abandoned. He will cry until he completely looses his voice. I dont know what to do.
I am 8 months pregnant and he has gotten so bad to the point that if I need to get up to pee during the night (or get up for anything) he will wake up and bawl his eyes out until i come back. This needs to change. I feel so bad listening to his pathetic little wimpers from his bedroom.
