Day #1 sleep baby sleep

ok so ive turned out to be one of those moms i swear i'd never be, the kind that lets her baby sleep with her! Recker has slept with us since the day we brought him home from the hospital, yes its been great and we love it, but we also need him to be able to sleep on his own, without jeremy or i. Its not like he isnt a good sleeper, he will sleep on average 8-11 hours so thats not the problem, its just that we need him to be able to sleep at other peoples houses and take naps easier than what he is doing now. So ive been reading book after book after book.....and FINALLY after two tries (haha im the one its hardest for i think) he is asleep in his crib in his bedroom!!! It took an hour of screaming and crying, but he finally dozed off and has been asleep for about an hour now haha. This is going to take a lot of work and yes i know its my fault, if i would have just put him in his crib from day one. But i loooove to snuggle and sleep with my baby boy. So this will be an adjustment for all of us!! Luckily i have great friends who are encouraging and well versed and read on their baby sleep theories haha....so wish me luck, this summer is going to be rough for both of us hahaha
