How to get my 1 year old to sleep in his crib instead of with me.

0 answers
Well this is more like 2 questions. So my son was sleeping in bed with me every night. I know thats a big NO NO but he would sleep longer and not get up every hour crying. He just turned 1 and I want him to start sleeping alone. So growing up my brother and I both slept in our pack in plays and not a crib. My son originally was sleeping in his crib but it ended up breaking and so I just put him in bed with me for a few weeks and then I tried his pack in play, is that ok? My son won't sleep long in it, so I thought at first it wasn't soft like my bed so I added some blankets so it would be soft. He still gets up and looks for me, so I don't know what to do. I tried to just let him cry himself to sleep but he doesn't, he ends up crying until he throws up.
