Currently my 3 month old is co-sleeping with me. How do I slowly change him to sleep on his cot? Also, he need to be hug then he will fall asleep. How do I teach him to sleep on his own?

Like what other mummies have shared, you can probably start bedtime routines and getting him used to his own cot. I'll also like to share another point of view, on what's the reason behind you wanting him to sleep on his own? I'm not saying that one way is better than the other, but perhaps look at things from his perspective? He's still quite small, just imagine having spent 9 months bonding with you in a snug, comfortable and warm womb - and suddenly being brought into a big world with many noises, sounds, lights etc. Our child relies on us a lot because well, we're all they really can count on! I've been co-sleeping with my son since he was born, he's almost 2 years old now - and we both love the bonding we have :) He feels more secured sleeping with me, and he'll roll over to snuggle when he wakes up in the night.
