My DS is 7.5 months. We started bed sharing at 3.5 months when I went back to work, it was the only way to get sleep. For the past couple weeks he's been tossing and turning so much that baby, me and my husband weren't sleeping. So... we put his crib together and in his own room finally. Started putting him down a bit earlier like between 7-8. I then was bringing him into bed with me about midnight every night so we could sleep because he kept waking up. That's not working either as he just keeps waking up. So for the past 3 nights he's been in his bed/room and I simply keep going to him Everytime he wakes. The first night he was up every 30minutes, it was horrible!! The second night he was up every 45mins to 2 hrs the third night he was up every 45 minutes like clock work. I tried CIO the 2nd night for a couple 5 minute increments, but it's just not for me or DH. I want to help the baby sleep and sooth himself and most of all sleep. I feel like such a failure in this area. I don't want to be a hindrance to him becoming a good sleeper, don't want him to feel alone, etc. I need some tips.
Honestly I would love to just continue cosleeping with him if he would only sleep. I go in every time he cries and pick him up because if I don't a blood curdling cry will definitely proceed. I rock, swing, hold, nurse him back to sleep and this alone can take half hour to and hour only to lay him down and have him screaming, standing up in the crib wanting me within 45 minutes sometimes 10 minutes. What in the world do I need to do?
