I am trying to get my 5m 3w son to take naps in his crib. So far I have been rocking and nursing him until he is asleep, then putting him down in his crib. Half the time he wakes up when I put him down. I will be going back to work in the fall (sub teacher), and need him to self-soothe to sleep. I am now trying the method of letting him cry for a while, then going in and patting him but not picking him up. This is awful!! Does this work? Someone please tell me he isn't going to end up hating me!!
