won't sleep unless on me Lock Rss

I have a 14 1/2 mth old boy and he won't go to sleep in his cot by himself.I've tried controlled crying,leaving him in the cot to cry himself to sleep and patting him on his back,but nothing seems to work.He can cry in his cot for up to an hour and still not go to sleep.I'm 4 1/2 mths pregnant and I need to get him to go to sleep by himself so I can rest too.He still wakes up through out the night if he falls asleep on me.He has a dummy which he throws out of the cot before he starts to cry.I don't know what to do anymore I'm just so tired.

Hi Kristina,
Can I suggest that you try following our settling program and persist with the techniques, it can take up to 3 weeks but babies learn from repetition.

You can get an overview of our settling program from the <a href=" Baby’s Sleep</a> section of the Huggies site or for more detail, and a visual demonstration, from <a href="It&#39;s time to sleep&lt;/a" />It's Time To Sleep</a> DVD&BOOK.
