Quoting *Nathan's Mommy*:" We've been co-sleeping with DS since day 1 and I'm ready to have my bed back! His crib is right next ... [snip!] ... switch him from our bed to his crib snd not even 5 mins he's up crying! How can I transition him from our bed to his crib?? TIA"
DD had no problems transitioning at around 5-6 months. We let her cry for like 10 minutes for 2-3 days. I can already tell that DS isnt going to be that easy. To date he has never fallen asleep without me or DH holding him. In the first few weeks we had to stand and rock him for the full 2 hours that he sleeps.
Every baby is different so you will have to try things out to see what works and it may depend on how much you are willing to let him cry. We wouldnt go longer than 15 mins.
