But I want him to sleep in the crib. After he falls asleep I can transfer him, no problem. But when he wakes up he doesnt want to go back into the crib. Last night I got him to go back into the crib, but it took an hour. Another night I spent three hours doing it. When he's in my bed he is constantly moving, and I am awake all night. Any ideas?

On another post, I recommended "The Sleep Sense Program". You can read the other post for all I said, but the program does not advocate CIO, so it's worth checking into! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> HTH!<br><br>

Looks like that costs money. I dont have any money, we live on a small income.

No, It isnt. And my bedroom is too small to do it, other wise I would, but we just dont have that kind of room in our bedroom.<br><br>
I can put him down on our bed, and walk away and he can sleep. But when I try and do that with the crib, he wakes up. I just dont get it!

Could you try putting the crib mattress on the floor and then lay down with him on it? When he's asleep, you can leave. If you have any extra money, get a twin or queen mattress and lie down with him on that. That's what I did with my daughter and it worked well.

I was going to suggest this, too.

Could it be because he smells you in your bed and not in his?

My dd needed my scent in her bed to help her sleep for the first few months. I would take off my shirt and place it on her after she had fallen asleep. It seemed to comfort her...I just kept a tank on, took off other shirt and either placed it on her or took it off as she was drifting off and wrapped her in it.
