so i am having issues. my son Breeze is almost 5 months old and he used to be a pretty good sleeper. at first we had a little trouble transitioning him from the bassinette to the crib, but we used a traveling bed in between to get him used to the size, which worked really well. but within the last month, he refused to sleep in his crib during the night. i guess it started in the last month, i was really sick and by myself (without my fiance) and so i kept the baby in bed with me, only for like 2 nights, but now thats the only place he will sleep. we tried letting him do a little self soothing, but he ended up crying for over 2 hours with us checking every ten minutes and i never really believed in the whole crying it out thing, so we stopped that. then we tried getting him ina routine every night: eating food, bath, lotion, read a book, feeding and then putting to bed, but that hasnt worked either (well except if he gets in bed with us) im going crazy because my fiance and i dont get any time without him (as much as i love time with him) and he used to love going to sleep in the crib. but if i let him cry it out feel like he thinks im abandoning him, and it doesnt seem to work. does anyone have advice??
