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!
