I'm wondering when I can expect my DD to be able to put herself to sleep? Currently, I have to swaddle her, give her a pacifer and bounce with her on an exercise ball for upwards of 20 minutes to get her to sleep. If she's not asleep enough when I put her down, her eyes pop right back open and I have to start all over again. Patting to calm her does not work.
Any suggestions? I've seen other bumpies say they can put their LO down drowsy and they put themselves to sleep. I would love this! My DD takes only 45 minute naps, so I spend a lot of my day bouncing on that darn ball.
