My son won't fall asleep unless I'm holding him, he is 5 months old.....what can I do to get him to sleep? I'm not down with letting him cry himself to sleep, so please don't advise me to.

I'm sorry but if u want him to self soothe then u must expect a few tears along the way over wise ur Gunna end up in a very tricky situation as child gets older there are plenty of techniques u can use that only allows ur child to cry for a short time.x
