My 8.5 month old has been co-sleeping with me on and off since he was born (didn't think we would, but he was colicky and we both slept if we did co-sleep), he would normally start sleeping in his crib and then come to bed with me later in the night. He was sleeping in his crib for 4-5 hours and then all of sudden he stopped. We went from 2-3 weeks of great sleep and naps to one day a 2 hour nap in his crib to there is no way you are putting me in that. He screams as soon as I even try to put him in the crib. He can be fast asleep or just dozing off and he screams. I have left him a couple of times to see if he would cry it out so to speak but after 20 minutes I go in and get him. He screams so hard that I just can't let him cry it out, its heartbreaking. He falls alseep really well, nursing but we are working on that. He is also up every hour to 2 hours. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I could try? I should also mention that I try to encourage him to play in his crib during the day to make it a postive environment but that doesn't work either, he really hates the crib. I need a good night sleep and so does he. Please help. thanks.
