This SUCKS!! Darwin is in his crib right now, crying and fussing, has been for about an hour. I'm here beside him, I refuse to leave him alone, but we're trying REALLY hard to teach him to sleep alone and I need some support. I love co-sleeping, but he's started climbing over my legs and can get out of the bed - it's dangerous. He also can't nap well unless he's with someone, preferably in bed napping with him. I need him to be able to nap alone and soothe himself back to sleep, as he's started taking LONG (2.5-3 hour) afternoon naps rather than several naps through the day. We've been at this an hour, and I already gave up earlier this evening and let him get up until he started to get tired again - I'm sticking to my guns, I refuse to give in, but this is ridiculously hard. He's so upset, I know he's confused, wondering why I'm ignoring him. I know he's not hungry, he's just overtired and doesn't understand what's happening, but it's so upsetting just listening to him cry! I keep going back over, every 5 minutes, to soothe him a bit but I want him to stay in his crib - please tell me this is going to work, it's breaking my heart.
