OK. I am more typically an attachment style parent. I co-sleep, cloth diaper, etc....

But I need some help with crib sleeping,...I currently bed-share and that is starting to just not work out. My baby is 16 months old and has never slept in a crib, but I am ready for that to change. I do not practice CIO and won't. We are dealing with possible RAS (seizures similar to breath-holding in response to pain. So CIO will not work for us.

Any input? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I would start by just getting your LO used to the crib. While he is awake, put him the crib. Make it a positive experience; don't try to make him sleep there yet. I would just slowly transition to a crib. Sorry I don't have any specific advice!

Thanks! I did do this last night. I also put his glowworm and a stuffed toy in there too. He stayed all of about 10 mins.

Hmmmm... can you put the crib in your room for awhile? Or maybe use a Pack 'N' Play as a transition?

That would be my suggestion as well, getting him used to the crib first by having him in it in your room before moving him to his own room, that we can get used to the space, and the smells of a different bed.

Currently we have the pack and play in our room and that hasn't been working at all. He did sleep in there for a little (the pack and play) while when he was a newborn. And we use to be able to get him to take naps in the crib, but not anymore.

I just need some sleep - does that sound selfish??

That does not sound selfish at all! Could try a toddler bed? Is there anyway to side-car the crib to your bed to sort of "wean" him away from you?
