My 16 month old likes to be rocked to sleep and then sleeps all night in his crib. If he wakes up (teething or illness) I usually rock him for a little bit and put him in his crib asleep. I am starting to get a little tired of rocking him every night and I do want to transition him to a toddler bed soon (his crib has a rail I can install on the front to convert it). I would like some suggestions on getting him to sleep in his bed without me having to rock him. Crying it out is not an option (he tries to climb out of the crib and could hurt himself if I leave him alone). Also, I am a fan of Dr. Sears and if any of you moms have read or heard anything he might say about this, that would be most helpful.
