A: It sounds like you have one strong-minded little guy. Take a few days and play games in and around his crib to associate it with fun. Play peek-a-boo through the slats. Hide a favorite toy in his crib and go hunting for it. Do this for a few minutes several times a day. The next step can be putting him in the crib at bedtime and sitting with him, until he falls asleep, to avoid a total tantrum. Every few days, you can sit farther from his crib. Once he starts sleeping in his crib again, be consistent letting him sleep in it. Even if he gets sick again, continue having him sleep in the crib. You can sleep on an air mattress by his crib so you're nearby. It will be much easier to transition you out of his room than transition him back to the crib.
