How can we co sleep with our son?

My wife and I have always had our one-year-old son in his crib with no issues. We’d really like to try to cosleep with him, but every time we try he can never settle down. He thinks it’s time to party and play. Any advice on how to manage that or try to transfer him to our bed? Please no hate comments. Thanks.

Once they are use to sleeping on their own, it’s nearly impossible to get them to settle down and sleep with you. We coslept for 10 mo the and then my son started sleeping in his crib. He’s now 16 months and even on nights he’s not sleeping well, it only gets worse if I try to lay him with me. He won’t settle down and sleep.

Why would you want that? It’s awful trying to break that habit. You should thank your lucky stars that he doesn’t want to co-sleep.

Wow, Why would you want to start cosleeping with your child?
Keep the child in his own bed where he belongs. If you do end up transferring him to your bed, you’ll regret it down the road when you have 6 year old who will no longer sleep alone.

If he is already sleeping on his own why change that? If he thinks it’s a party that is your sign not to change whats happening.

Sometimes they just want their own space. My daughter was like this. She co slept for about 10 months and was simply more comfortable and settled in her own bed. Even now, at nearly 6, she will try and start in bed with us, sometimes. But she will eventually leave and go to her own. Often times we have to let them lead :purple_heart:

Maybe try to start a routine of “quiet” time before bed to start the relaxation process. My son and I co-sleep at times and he is the same way with not wanting to settle down. I often wake up and find that he is still up moving around. Try your best not to interact with them or try playing soothing music. Maybe that will help.
