I have a 10-month-old DD that we'd like to transition to a crib after always co-sleeping. I would continue co-sleeping, but find that she and I are not sleeping as well as we used to, and I think it's time for a change. I am not into the "cry-it-out" method, and she has a difficult time soothing herself even at 10 months. She has always been breastfed, and that seems to be the one thing that soothes her. She has never taken a pacifier, and I can't rocke her to sleep, then lay her down without her waking up. I never have been able to do that consistently, though I have been able to lay her down (without nursing) without her waking about once or twice a month. Any suggestions on how to get her sleeping in her crib?? Maybe someone has had a similar experience and has some advice they can offer me? Thanks in advance!
