Suggestions for helping my son sleep in his crib..

For the past month my son (10months) has rejected sleeping in his crib for naps.. I will nurse him and cuddle him before putting him dow, he will be completely asleep but as soon as I place him in his crib he creams bloddy murder. I can't lay down with him either since he does the same thing when I try to get up.

I have been CIO for the past two days but it is killing me. I would like to find somethng better instead of CIO. He sleeps with me at night but impossible for me to sleep with him during the day.

Any suggestions or tips any mommas could help a very frustrated momma?

Thanks

Check out the No Cry Sleep Solution. It has some good ideas. I have the same problem. With ds#1 I always slept with him. It's not an option now that ds#2 is here. I nurse ds#2 to sleep, try to slip in the binky, push a blanket between us before getting out of bed, play music, etc etc etc. I have to go in after an hour or so to nurse him back to sleep. He's 14 mo. Having a routine helps.

ETA: When I have read of CIO instructions before, it's always recomended to do CIO at night first, then add naps later. With you co-sleeping at night it might be hard to do CIO effectively in the daytime. I have never tried CIO so I don't have personal experience to add...
