Co-sleeping to crib transition: Day 1

Sullivan has slept right next to me for the last six months and tonight we are trying out the crib.  It's 8:10 here and he is currently sleeping and has been for about 30 minutes.  It took him twenty minutes to fall asleep.  Our routine was bath time, book, I nursed him and kissed him and put him in his crib.  He cried for ten minutes and I went up and patted his belly and told him I love him (he stopped crying), but then started again for another ten minutes and has been asleep since.  I need to muster up all the strength I have to make this work because I love our cuddles but I know the older he gets the harder this transition will be for everyone.  Let's see how day one of sleep training goes.


P.S. Any advice would be appreciated!

  1. Sounds like it went great Megan! I know it was probably difficult for you to hear him cry but I bet he gets better every night. We babysat Ada last night and she still cried for about 3-5 minutes.
