OK, we coslept with my youngest until he was 11 months old. Then he started kicking us all night and trying to play, and eventually wouldn't sleep if dh was in the bed also. He would kick him and try to push him out of the bed, and scream everytime dh came near me! So funny, but got very tiring. We moved him into a crib in our room, which didn't work out too well, because I was pregnant and everytime I got up to pee, he woke up and screamed. So we moved him into his own room. He goes down to bed no problem, but wakes up often, at least 4 times and that is a good night, a night. My husband is in charge of baby waking, since I night weaned. So at least four times a night, he stumbles down the hall, picks up our now 16 month old, and lays him back down to sleep. He goes right back to sleep, but I am wondering if there is another way to help him to learn how to sooth himself. I do not want to let him CIO, but my husband is getting cranky, and I am looking for another solution. Help, I need advice!!
