These are some tips that you can try :
-Keep your baby at arm's length. If you used a bedside sleeper when he was a newborn, consider breaking it out for an encore (as long as your baby is still under 30 pounds). That way, it creates a separate yet close sleeping arrangement. If you don't have one, ask around for a loaner , chances are a friend has one you can borrow for a few weeks while your baby gets used to sleeping in his own space.
-Room in: Move the crib from the baby's room to yours. Then, once he becomes adjusted to sleeping in his own crib, move the crib back (this method lets him deal with one transition at a time.
-Do a sleepover. If your baby's room has a bed in it (or if there's room for a cot, an air mattress, or a sleeping bag), snooze in his room for a night or two (he stays in his crib, you do not!).
-Make the switch in stages. Let him nap in the crib for a couple of weeks until he gets used to it. Then complete the transition to total crib-dom for all sleeping, all the time.
-Create a bedtime routine. If you haven't already established some nighttime rituals (take a bath, read a book, share a snuggle), now's the time. These activities signal him that his crib awaits.
-Linger for a while. Don't just drop and dash give your baby a chance to settle down and get comfy while you're still in the room. One tactic to try: Sit in a chair (or on the floor) next to his crib, then sit a little farther away the next night and the night after that until you're out the door and he's happy on his own.
-Leave your scent behind. Your baby will find solace in an item that smells like Mommy like the T-shirt you wore that day, your favorite sweatshirt, or your (not-too-damp) bath towel
