Your son's main aim at this stage is to get into your bed.He knows that if he cries and performs that you will appear and if he puts on enough of a performance he will succeed in his aim and get lots of attention as well.The only way to sort this out is to go through the controlled crying method. You should let him cry for at least 5 minutes to start and then only go to him to reassure him and leave the room immediately. Now add another minute to the time before going to him the next time and so on each time adding a minute. This technique may take more than one night to get right.Your son will not be able to injure himself in his cot. Make sure that there is nothing that he can hurt himself on in the cot.
