Sleep training one year old in my room

I had sleep trained my baby using the cry it out method when he was about 6 months old. It worked within a week and he went from waking up every 1.5-2 hours to sleeping 5/6 hours straight and even a full 11/12 hours straight through on occasions.

However when he was around 8months old I became inconsistent on our sleeping times and arrangements for a few months due to things going on in the house at the time. Since then his sleep has gotten worse and he now wakes every 2/3 hours and won't self settle. He is now 11 months old.

I want to sleep train him again, but the problem is we share a room so if I use Cry it out or Controlled crying he will know I'm in the room and keep crying until I pay him attention. When he was younger if I covered myself with the blanket he wouldn't know I'm there but now he is aware enough to know that it's me.

He can also now stand up/walk, so he will no longer just lie there and fuss/cry till he falls asleep. He will stand up in his cot and kick/ stomp/pace/cry until I come to him. And he does this whether I am in the room or not.

So does anyone have advice on how to sleep train a baby when you share a room? And on sleep training a baby that can walk (but can't climb out of cot yet)?

P.S him having his own room isn't possible as I am a 21 year old university student living in a 2 bedroom flat with mum and can't afford my own place xx

@Ninnin11 hey OP I'm here for any advice on this lol

I also have a 1 year old and her sleeping at night is a nightmare. Currently rocking her to sleep and some nights she wakes up every couple of hours and stands in cot crying waiting for me to either tap her back to sleep or rock her. Officially sleep deprived. Want to sleep train but just need advice as same as you me and DD share a room.

If i were you, I'd camp out in the living room for a week and do CC with him in the room by himself.

Oh dear, I was reading this thread with enthusiasm and hope I to find the solution to my dd predicament. I have a soon 11 month old baby who just want to sleep with me in my bed. My partner is has a very busy professional life which cause him to be away for days which means half of the bed is vacant!
She was sleeping in her crib at 5 months but outgrew her crib. It took us a good 1 and half to get the new cot but by that time it was too late: she did not want to go back. I tried sleep train DD but is difficult not only because she is in the same room as us but also because she is not the same gullible infant. She's much aware now and know that I in the room. She will cry out until I pick her up.
Not sure what to do.
