16mth old co-sleeping Lock Rss

hi my little 16 month old little boy will not sleep on his own. we try to put him down around 7.30-8 in his own cot and he just screams and screams. i try to settle him but he just gets so worked up. he is usually awake when we go to bed so i put him in with us just to get some sleep because it is so hard when your husband has to get up early. i know this is a bad thing. please help. how do i get him back in his own cot and settled for the whole night.

Hi,
I think he really does know that you are going to give in so pushes the buttons that he needs to.
It really is hard to have your baby cry and upset and we are all the same when it comes to feeling the need to comfort them. – I was no different.
The thing is if you really want to change the way things are then you need to teach your son to sleep independently and that does not come without some heart break for everyone.

If you follow the program we have precisely for 6 to 12 months old then you could see change in the routine in about one week but persistence is the key.

To get full details of our settling program go to ‘<a href="http://www.huggies.com/au/pregnancy_parenting/yourbabysleep/">Your Baby’s Sleep</a> page or follow the It’s Time To Sleep DVD&BOOK. Huggies have a great offer on at the moment – see <a href="http://www.huggies.com/au/about_huggies/special_offers/bookoffer/">Member Exclusive Book Offers</a>
