My almost 9 month old sleeps with us in our bed and at this point I would really like to have him sleeping in his crib. His crib is in our room and has to be because of space. He does nap in his crib during the day and I can put him in there at bedtime to fall asleep but eventually he wakes up a few hours later and wants to sleep in our bed. I still nursing him only during the night but I do want to wean him from this. When he sleeps with me he will wake up often and I nurse him to fall back to sleep. I don't believe he's hungry, its just comforting for him. This has become a cycle that I want to stop because none of us are getting a goods night sleep. Any suggestions on how I can get him to sleep in his crib all night and what to do when he wakes and wants to sleep in our bed?
